BETWEEN THE FIELD AND THE ARCHIVE: the museum’s ethnographic recording equipments (1947-1989)
Museu Nacional de Etnologia



Presentation

 


Within the celebration of its 50th anniversary, the National Museum of Ethnology exhibits for the first time the sound and image recording equipments used by its founding team in the field research campaigns held in Portugal and in Africa from the 1940’s to the 1980’s.

These equipments were central in the making of some of the most important Portuguese ethnographic archives, which are part of the film, sound and photographic heritage the Museum safeguards and disseminates.

Apart from their importance as testimonies of the research methodology used by the founding team of the Museum, under the coordination of Jorge Dias, in the renovation of Portuguese anthropological studies and of ethnological museology, many of these equipments are also the source of some of the most important historical records of the Portuguese Intangible Cultural Heritage, made from 1947 onwards within the Ethnological Research Centre.
