Managing Custom and Managing Conflict in Papua New Guinea.
For decades a variety of governments in Papua New Guinea have been attempting to remove or limit the allegedly economically backward impact of customary land tenure regimes in the country. Yet although members of the new emerging elite often promote policies in which custom is presented as a problem, in practice their attitude is often ambiguous. The problem that state bureaucrats and business leaders face is not so much one of grassroots villagers’ stubborn attachment to customary relations and practices, but rather the elite’s inability to control the contexts in which customary ethics and obligations flourish or are rejected; a perspective that is not limited to Papua New Guinea alone, but has global resonances.

Samtidsindsamling, videndeling og medkuratering, ved Mille Gabriel - antropolog og museumsinspektør på Etnografisk Samling ved Nationalmuseet i København.
How do objects, places, spaces or practices get a place in ‘the global museum’? This seminar seeks to take advantage of what we as a museum already know and do, as the entire academic staff of the Museum of Cultural History in various ways engages in heritage making; as advisors to the Directorate of Cultural Management, as archaeologists, as keepers of collections, as conservators, as curators, exhibition designers, as magazine administrators, or as anthropologists. To discover our strengths, this seminar represents a first effort to engage in a joint comparative exploration of what such ‘makings’ of cultural heritage, world heritage, museum objects and archaeological objects have in common.
Formålet med seminaret er å arbeide målrettet med artikkeltekster til bind I av prosjektpublikasjonene ’Towards an Archaeology of Salvation in the Middle Ages’ (arbeidstittel).
