International conference organized by the French national institute for preventive archaeological research and the Quai Branly Museum

How anthropologists addresses the past of the "tribal” societies they study? How do these societies represent their history and how can archaeology serve to expand it? What does archaeology bring to our understanding of these "timeless" societies? What historical and archaeological perspectives should we assign to these societies? In return, can the anthropology and archaeology of non-European societies provide new perspectives for "Western” archaeologists to follow?

By bringing together archaeologists and anthropologists working on non-Western cultures, this conference intends to provide an overview of recent advances in research focusing on non-Western prehistory. General summaries and case studies will help us take stock of the diversity of the fields and the geographical areas treated during the conference.
