Collections in partnership with the French Ministry of Ethnology and Heritage
Depuis les années 1980, un réseau s'est formé autour de l'ethnologie au ministère de la Culture. Les partenariats, associations et autres unions ont favorisé la production d'une abondante littérature scientifique ou de vulgarisation. Cette rubrique présente les publications réalisées ou soutenues par le ministère de la Culture dans le domaine de l'ethnologie de la France.
"Ethnology as a legacy", great interviews filmed
"Ethnology as a Legacy" is a collection of interviews conducted by Gilles Le Mao and produced by La Huit where great figures of ethnology talk about the profession to which they have devoted their lives. Directed by Alain Morel, the collection is supported by the Ministry of Culture (Directorate General of Heritage). Launched in March 2005, it now has about twenty double-DVD’s each of about 180 minutes. These major interviews are gradually being added to the international encyclopedia of anthropological histories Berosis (online).
How did one become and become an ethnologist?
Having started in the 1940s for the oldest, ethnologists talk about the profession to which they have devoted their lives. Young researchers who then ventured into fields that were sometimes difficult to access, the figures of ethnology who now tell their story have all taken up positions of responsibility. Some of them have gained notoriety among a wide audience.
These testimonies were conceived as archives, documenting the ethnic groups that these ethnologists studied, their social life, their technology and their economy, their religion and their way of thinking about the world: societies in Africa, Asia, India, New Zealand and New Zealand.Guinea, South America and Europe. For others, the interest of these archives will lie in the reflection of these precursors, who opened new paths to anthropological research, and in the echo of the debates, sometimes lively, in which they had to participate. Finally, these ethnologists approach the question of the unity of human societies that share the same questioning in their own way, beyond their own way of conceiving the world, in their own way.
The collection "Ethnology of France and contemporary worlds"
The collection «Ethnologie de la France et des mondes contemporains» publishes studies on France, both hexagonal and ultra-marine, considered as an ethnographic terrain of primary interest, in its historical dynamics and its social, cultural and heritage diversity.
It is also a space for the elaboration of an anthropology constantly updating and re-examining at new costs the themes, concepts and production conditions of the social sciences.
This review brings together studies based on individual field surveys as well as collective works proposing the synthesis of thematic research programmes, colloquia or seminars, on today’s society, The European Commission’s Green Paper on the Environment, Public Health and Consumer Protection, which is designed to respond to the curiosity of a wide audience and to be a step forward for the social sciences.
With a scientific vocation, the collection is animated by a reading committee composed of a dozen European researchers and research teachers in anthropology, ethnology, sociology and heritage sciences.
