Objects of Projection: Material Culture on Film in the Musée de l’Homme 1930-1970.

Supervised by: Professor Michael Cowan and Dr Tom Rice

My research explores the development and use of ethnographic film in the Musée de l’Homme to document, cross-culturally, material culture and practices of making. I study the museum’s use of film to reveal ‘the indivisibility of humanity across space and time’, and film’s capacity to produce images and artefacts of ‘culture’.
