Exhibits and posters for the general public "Research dissemination"

 

 Several exhibitions curated by the Lacito since its beginnings may be found here. Some are much older than others, but they are all of interest in that they present the themes central to field linguistics and anthropology in a lively and accessible manner, and their scientific usefulness for a thoughtful and reasoned description of local cultures and their contributions to our understanding of humanity is readily visible..
In their own way, these exhibitions also give a view of how French research in the domain has evolved over the last twenty years.

The mammoth task of reconstituting the exhibits and designing the graphics and web pages, which include images and video, which was more or less the equivalent of solving a sort of gigantic “jigsaw puzzle”, was accomplished by Laurent Venot.
Some displays could not be reconstituted, either because parts of them had been used for other exhibits or because they were damaged in successive office moves.

Many of the Laboratory’s researchers contributed their knowledge and their documents, their concrete experiences among the cultures described; their authorship is given for each display. However, the exhibits were first and foremost the work of a small team of designers and creators whose members are given at the head of the exhibition list.

 

  • Exhibitions: what for? how?

Following is a short citation by the founding director of the Lacito, J. M.C. Thomas, in 1984, explaining the motivations and scope of these exhibitions:
 “Scientific researchers appear – and like to think of themselves– as specialists of knowledge in its entirety, of universal science, even though to be a priest in Thot’s temple today they must be content with a single arcane, their own specialty.
However, for humankind to progress along the path of knowledge and know-how, the sum of collective findings and technologies must be made available to the largest possible number, through numerous practical applications and high quality popularization, and not just the knowledge as it is when accumulated, but also after it has been processed, worked over by specialists.
While this is true for all science, it is especially true for the humanities and social sciences, characterized by the observation of humankind in daily life.
It is very rare that the people observed reap the benefits of their observation, especially when the latter is rendered in the form of a doctoral dissertation, papers presented in international symposia or in publications so highly technical that only specialists are able to understand them.
This is why the LACITO has oriented part of its activities towards popularizing its research and fostering its application in the populations studied.”
