Title Objets d’ailleurs: expressions matérielles de la differénce e de l’appartenance
Author(s) Povrzanovic Frykman, Maja
Date 2007
Editor(s) Musée des civilisations de l’Europe
English abstract
The session, “Objects from Elsewhere: Material Expressions of Difference and Belonging” (at the SIEF-ADAM Congress “Among Others: Encounters and Conflicts in European and Mediterranean Societies”, Marseille 200), contributed to reflection on the relativity of what and who is Other as well as on who decides – and how – on the locations of centre and periphery, on what is distant and what is close, and whether “elsewhere” denotes the faraway and the unknown or the very familiar, implying intense emotional attachment. It presented analyses of objects of everyday use, souvenirs embodying memories, and objects invested with symbolic meanings - coming from elsewhere and situated in private and public contexts - as signs of belonging, as signals of social status, as shrines of family history, or as consciously manipulated signs of cultural difference. The interest for objects from elsewhere significantly added to the understanding of the complexity of relationships and connections in the construction of locality and community through objects and embodied practices.
