(Re)moving Bodies in Museums
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Centre for Gender Research.
2013 (English)In: I rörelse / On the Move, 2013, 60-61 p.Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The paper revolves around cases of movements and re-movements of animal and human bodies in museums, mirroring ideological movements and changes, movements of the (physical but non-living) bodies in time and space as well as representations of time and space, also in meta-exhibitions about historical exhibitions. The focus lies on the non-living bodies in natural history museums, i.e. stuffed animals, skeletons, anatomical preparations and models but this does not exclude the living, breathing, moving, feeling and thinking bodies that gaze at the dead. The paper is part of the project Zoo/mbies and Nature Morte: Bodies in Museums of Natural History 1800–2007, in which museums in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Uppsala and London are explored. It also relates to the question of how heritage is constructed and transformed, and how the nature/culture-dualism still forms these constructions.
