West African Voice-Disguisers and Audible Ghosts: A Case for Expanding the Fluency of Global Design History

To translate the learnings from an AfriDesignX roundtable session held at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, Cher Potter published a journal article entitled ‘West African Voice-Disguisers and Audible Ghosts: A Case for Expanding the Fluency of Global Design History’ in the Journal of Design and Culture. The museological paper studies the way that objects from Africa have been categorised within museums in the UK. It argues for broader categories of design that encompass ‘ethnographic objects’.
