Description

Taxidermic Signs: Reconstructing Aboriginality written by assistant professor of English at the University of Western Ontario Pauline Wakeman offers readers a fascinating look at taxidermy both literally and symbolically within the context of museums, ethnographic photography, phonography, film, forensic anthropology, and the human genome project. Chapters discuss Reading the Banff Park Museum: Time, Affect, and the Production of Frontier Nostalgia; Celluloid Salvage: Edward S. Curtis's Experiments with Photography and Film; Salvaging Sound at Last Sight: Marius Barbeau and the Anthropological Rescue of Nass River Indians; and Repatriation's Remainders: Kennewick Man, Kwaday Dan Ts'inchi, and the Reinvention of Race. The book contains 20 black and white archival photographs, a bibliography, and an index.
