Changing Global Hierarchies of Value? Museums, artifacts, frames, and flows

International Conference arranged by the University of Copenhagen and The National Museum of Denmark.

Museums are said to classify the world; but the world is changing, and so are the museum worlds and the worlds of arts and artefacts. This conference explores how the world is imagined and classified through the presentation, interpretation and classification of artifacts; and how the global hierarchy of value (cf. Herzfeld 2004) might be changing in through these flows and circulations.

The conference is convened by Prof Oscar Salemink, Amélia Siegel Corrêa PhD, Jens Sejrup PhD, Caroline Lillelund and Vibe Nielsen, who make up the research team for the project  ‘Global Europe: Constituting Europe from the Outside In through Artefacts’ at the Department of Anthropology, University of Copenhagen.
