Eduard Rabe: A Case Study in the „Bürgerliches Sammeln“ of Ethnographica in the Hanseatic City of Lübeck

The research of Dipika Nadkarni looks at ethnographic objects collected in Lübeck outside the realm of academic ethnography, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Using a combination of material analyses and historical records, she attempts to piece together the history of the objects from their country of origin to their journey to Lübeck. Through this process, her research sheds light on the phenomenon of bourgeois collecting of artifacts in Lübeck as well as on the social structures that led to the creation and demand for these objects.
