This project proposes the creation of a new line of research entitled "Historiography of Anthropology". Its purpose is to promote research on the various histories of anthropology without loosing sight of its historiographical aspect and its link with the anthropological theory, which implies a constant reflection on how and why to write such histories. It will be implemented in two imbricated scopes. The first concerns the individual research project on the circulation of Sir and Lady J. G. Frazer and their work in France, which I develop as a researcher of Bérose (Encyclopédie internationale des histoires de l'anthropologie), coordinated in Paris by Christine Laurière (CNRS) and Frederico Rosa (NOVA FCSH). In particular, it is a matter of describing, through an unpublished corpus, the pivotal role played by Lady Frazer in the circuit that linked her and her husband to the French intellectuals, writers, and editors, placing her in an indeterminate gender position: neither only wife nor full intellectual. The second scope refers to the institutional articulation between the Arquivo Edgard Leuenroth (AEL), which houses an important collection of history of anthropology, not yet fully catalogued, and the Department of Anthropology of the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp). The aim is to promote the classification and research of this collection together with the broader theoretical debate on the historiography of anthropology, the subject of the courses that will be offered in this department.
