Passing things on : Ancestors and Genealogies in Northeast India

In this volume we gather local and international scholars engaging the ‘field’ and the ‘archive’ to interrogate objects and a few of anthropology’s own ancestors. In this way, fresh insights are gained that enrich our understanding of colonial history, the motivations of its many actors, and what it means for ethnographic collections, contemporary expressions and communities of origin.
