Emmanuel Désveaux

Emmanuel Désveaux is Professor of Anthropology at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and research specialist and curator at the Musée du quai Branly in Paris, France. His two-year field study at Big Trout Lake resulted in his first book aimed at a structural analysis of myths in connection with ethnography, Sous le signe de l’ours, Mythes et temporalité chez les Ojibwa septentrionaux (1988). Later field study in Montana, working with Crow, Blackfeet and Assiniboines Indians, proved vital to a more comprehensive study entitled Quadratura americana. Essai d’anthropologie lévistraussienne (2001). His third book will be published in 2007 under the title Spectres de l’anthropologie, suite nord-américaine.
