Dear Colleague,

This volume of Museum Worlds features two special sections, where “Ritual Repatriation” poses an examination of ritual meaning and form across repatriation processes and “Engaging Anthropological Legacies” provides new insight into redeploying ethnographic collections and formats toward more convivial and cosmo-optimistic futures.
