The unique Mexican feather headdress preserved in the Museum of Ethnology in Vienna has engaged the interest and imagination both of specialists and the wider public ever since being discovered and recognized in its importance in 1878 by Ferdinand von Hochstetter, a geologist and first director the recently established Museum of Natural History in Vienna. The spectacular object made of quetzal and other feathers and adorned with numerous ornaments of gold had first been recorded as a “Moorish hat” in 1596 on an inventory of the famous Ambras collection, one of the largest Kunst- and Wunderkammern of its time, owned by Archduke Ferdinand II of Tyrol. In post-revolutionary Mexico what was considered to be “Moctezuma's headdress” was adopted as an indigenist symbol of the identity of the new Mexico with the Aztec Empire.

Der altmexikanische Federkopfschmuck is the result of a joint project of the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia and the Museum of Ethnology Vienna. In this book, for the first time Mexican and Austrian scholars present extensive evidence relating to the history, possible meanings and uses, and the techniques employed in the manufacture of this outstanding document of Mexico’s pre-Hispanic past, including the copy made in 1940 in Mexico.

With contributions by Ernst Bauernfeind, Christian Feest, Salvador Guilliem Arroyo, Martina Kaller, Melanie Korn, María Olvido Moreno Guzmán, María de Lourdes Navarijo Ornelas, Bertina Olmedo Vera, Lilia Rivero Weber, Nelly M. Robles García, and Gerard van Bussel.

Transfer und Wiederaneignung von Wissen

Different cultures of knowledge are characterized by their respective forms of the production, storage, and transmission of bodies of knowledge. In connection with social change, processes of the transfer of knowledge, which unfold across larger temporal and spatial distances, are increasingly becoming relevant.

The contributions in the present volume pay special attention to the processes of the transfer and appropriation of knowledge both between discreet cultures of knowledge (as, for example, in the transfer of technology) and across generations within specific cultures of knowledge (such as in the reappropriation of archived bodies of knowledge) from the perspectives of anthropology, theology, archaeology, and history.

The present volume of collected essays is the result of an interdisciplinary workshop on „Transfer and Reappropriation of Knowledge,“ organized in 2007 by the anthropological section of the research college SFB/FK 435 "Cultures of Knowledge and Social Change” at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt am Main.

With contributions by Christian Carstensen, Dennis Dierks, Daniel Graña-Behrens, Iris Gareis, Rainer Hatoum, Susanne Jauernig, Henry Kammler Tobias L. Kienlin, Korinna Schönhärl, Thomas Schuetz, Jana Steingäßer, Siegfried Wiedenhofer, and a preface by Karl-Heinz Kohl.
