Mélanie Roustan is anthropologist. She’s assistant professor at the National Museum of Natural History, in Paris (France). She teaches visitors studies in the Museum’s Master in Museology. She conducts researches in the PALOC laboratory (centered on heritage and territories). Her approach focuses on material culture and social production of objects and subjects. She explores museum collections and exhibitions, thanks to ethnographies of them as places for working, for visiting, but also for thinking heritage, memory and cosmology. She currently works on the indigenous paradigm in french museums, and leads research on zoological gardens from the point of view of the heritagization of alive animals.
She published several papers and some books, such as Sous l’emprise des objets? Culture matérielle et autonomie (L’Harmattan, 2007), Voyage au Musée du quai Branly, with Octave Debary, prefaced by James Clifford (La Documentation française, 2012), and El museo y sus pūblicos. El visitante tiene la palabra, (Ariel/Arte y Patrimonio, 2013 – with Jacqueline Eidelman and Bernadette Goldstein).
