Mareile Flitsch on dealing with the past in Social Anthropology

Film © University of Zurich, President’s Service UZH – Event Management, Central IT – Multimedia & E-Learning Services (MMP), 2024 Faculty of Philosophy "Dealing with the Past" from 9:32, Prof. Dr. Mareile Flitsch from 10:14

The decolonization of ethnographic collections and museums is central to how the discipline deals with its past. Director Mareile Flitsch reports on how we approach this topic in our research: together with the societies of origin. The film features impressions of the visit by the delegation of the indigenous Kawésqar in summer 2023 and the collaboration with the Edo United Club of Switzerland for the exhibition "Benin Dues" (from August 2024).
