2:00 PM --  A Novel Idea: Anthropology & the Sacred
Redmond Public Library
Multi-Purpose Room
Saturday, April 30, 2016

A pivotal moment in "Euphoria" involves the questionable acquisition of a sacred object. Today, many museums in the United States and Europe have a variety of sacred and profane objects in their collections that were acquired by anthropologists during the early twentieth century. In this talk, Amy Harper explores the ways in which anthropology contributed to a trend of acquisition and display of cultural artifacts. These collections often contributed to the exoticization of colonized peoples and raised question regarding issues of representation and cultural authority.
