New peer-reviewed article on Mission Raquez

In 1904, French explorer and author Alfred Raquez embarked on a year-long ethnographic mission through Laos to collect material for the 1906 Colonial Exposition in Marseille. He published his notes in L’Avenir du Tonkin and its sister publication La Revue Indochinoise, and took hundreds of photos, many of which are still collected as postcards, and made hundreds of phonograph rolls of field recordings, which are now lost.

I am very pleased that my article on Mission Raquez has been published in the prominent peer-reviewed journal History and Anthropolgy, published by Taylor and Francis, and listed in all sorts of spiffy neat-o international humanities indexes.

Here is the abstract:

This paper focuses on Mission Raquez, a French ethnographic expedition through Laos to collect material for the Marseille Colonial Exposition of 1906. This paper discusses the location of extant material and considers the ethnographic methods used on the mission in conjunction with anthropological study, mass media, and popular celebrity in turn of the century France.
