Scope and Contents:
This series, dated 1971-2007 and undated, consists of materials relating to Ortner's professional activities. These include notes, correspondence, drafts, newsclippings, photographs, and computer disks.

Subseries 6.1, Lectures, conferences, symposia, 1975-1986 and undated, includes Ortner's notes and research materials for these lectures or talks at conferences. Ortner's lecture addressing science and culture in modern society was for the Smithsonian Resident Associate Program in 1984. The research materials that accompany Ortner's notes for his lecture on science and religion follow the controversy and lawsuit over the National Museum of Natural History's exhibit on evolution, which opened in 1979. The materials from the Smithsonian's Seventh International Symposium, How Humans Adapt: A Biocultural Odyssey include files from Ortner's participation in the 1981 symposium. Drafts, book reviews, and public relations materials for the book that accompanied the symposium, which Ortner edited, are also included.

Subseries 6.2, Forensic work, 2002, 2007, includes correspondence, notes, photographs, CD-Roms, and floppy discs relating to forensic cases from outside agencies on which Ortner was asked to collaborate. In these cases Ortner used remains to determine cause of death, verify identity, or provide other information for the case.

Subseries 6.3 Other professional activities, 1971-2005, includes NMNH Research Associate Rebecca Ferrell's NIH grant proposal for a project titled "The Biology of Striae of Retzius in Human Tooth Enamel" that Ortner supervised in 2005; case reports Ortner organized and edited for the Paleopathology Newsletter; workshops he organized for the annual meetings of the Paleopathology Association from 1997-2002; and Ortner's short-courses in paleopathology. The material from the short-courses in paleopathology includes planning and correspondence from when they were offered as a lecture series at the Smithsonian Institution with Walter G. J. Putschar during the years 1971-1974 and 1985. The file also includes short-courses at the University of Bradford during the years 1988, 1994, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2005.

Subseries 6.4 Photographs, 1960s-2000s, includes slides, negatives, and prints depicting professional events, such as conferences and awards ceremonies; Ortner at work in his office or lab with colleagues and interns; and a few prints of unidentified specimens. Notable people included in these images are Thomas Dale Stewart and John Lawrence Angel. Also included are negatives of photographic portraits of children, probably Ortner's.

This series is arranged in 4 subseries: 6.1 Lectures, conferences, symposia, 1975-1986, undated; 6.2 Forensic work, 2002, 2007; 6.3 Other professional activities, 1971-2005; 6.4 Photographs, 1960s-2000s.

Summary:
Ivan Karp (1943-2011) was a curator of African Ethnology at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) from 1984 to 1993. He was also a professor at Emory University from 1993 to 2011. He conducted fieldwork among the Iteso (Teso) of Kenya and made significant contributions to the areas of African systems of thought, social theory, museum studies, and public scholarship. His collection contains his research on the Iteso of Kenya; his work at Emory University and the Smithsonian Institution; his reviews of manuscripts and books; recommendations that he wrote for his colleagues and students; his published articles and papers presented at conferences; and his project files on various topics including museum studies, African philosophy, public scholarship, agency and personhood, and the history of social anthropology.
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains the professional papers of Ivan Karp, documenting his work as an anthropologist, professor, and museum curator. The materials include his research on the Iteso of Kenya; his work at Emory University and the Smithsonian Institution; his reviews of manuscripts and books; recommendations that he wrote for his colleagues and students; his published articles and papers presented at conferences; and his project files on various topics including museum studies, African philosophy, public scholarship, agency and personhood, and the history of social anthropology.

Karp's Iteso research files span from the late 1960s to the 1990s. These materials consist of his field notes, in both paper and digital form; household surveys; photographs; sound recordings; maps; grant proposals; bibliographic research; correspondence; notes and drafts of his dissertation; and his other writings. A great deal of the field materials was collected by his field assistants, particularly Steven Omuse. Some field materials were also collected by Karp's first wife, Patricia.

His Smithsonian files are electronic and contain little documentation regarding his administrative work. There are, however, some materials relating to the planning of exhibits at NMNH and a proposal to establish a program focusing on the African continent and the African Diaspora. There is also a memo with Karp's response to questions from a House Subcommittee regarding the National African American Museum and complaints about the NMNH Africa Hall. Other associated materials include his research and papers on museums and exhibits. While there are no files pertaining to the first two museum conferences he organized, a folder titled "Bellagio" contains documentation for the conference and associated workshops on museums and globalization that he organized while at Emory.

Karp's files from Emory are also in digital form and more substantive than his Smithsonian materials. They document his work on the different committees he chaired and programs he directed and founded, including the Center for the Study of Public Scholarship. His Emory files also include his comments on students' dissertations, papers, and proposals.

The digital files also document Karp's other areas of interests, particularly African philosophy; concepts of identity, personhood, and agency; and the relationships between international development and personhood. His work on African philosophy largely consists of files from a number of collaborative projects with Kenyan philosopher Dismas Masolo, including the 1993 conference in Nairobi they organized and the associated volume they edited, African Philosophy as Cultural Inquiry (2000). There are a few files of research on the Luo people. His research on development and personhood focuses on Africa, particularly on Kenya, and includes his papers, notes, and reference sources, which also exist in paper form. There are also files of obituaries and memorials of Karp from numerous publications and events.

Other materials in Karp's collection include his doctorate diploma, his Master's thesis, family photos, and a wedding album from his first marriage.
Arrangement:
This collection is organized into 6 series: 1) Iteso Research; 2) Development Discourse; 3) Personal; 4) Photographs; 5) Sound Recordings; 6) Born Digital Files.
Biographical / Historical:
Ivan Karp (1943-2011) was a curator of African Ethnology at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) from 1984 to 1993. He conducted fieldwork among the Iteso (Teso) of Kenya and made significant contributions to the areas of African systems of thought, museum studies, and public scholarship.

Karp was born on August 27, 1943 in Stamford, Connecticut. He attended the University of Vermont as an undergraduate, majoring in Sociology and Anthropology (1961-1965), and pursued graduate studies in Social Anthroplogy at the University of Rochester (1967-1969). Karp received his M.A. (1969) and Ph.D. (1974) from University of Virginia. As a doctoral student he conducted research among the Iteso from 1969 to 1971. His dissertation, titled Fields of Change Among the Iteso of Kenya, was published in 1978. Karp continued his research on the Iteso into the 1990s and published various papers including "Beer Drinking and Social Experience in African Society" (1980) and "Laughter at Marriage: Subversion in Performance" (1987).

Before his employment at the Smithsonian, Karp held a teaching appointment at Colgate University from 1972 to 1975 and was a professor at Indiana University from 1976 to 1984. At Indiana University, he coedited with Charles S. Bird Explorations in African Systems of Thought (1980), the first of a 34-volume series published under his editorship.

He left Indiana University in 1984 to become the Curator of African Ethnology at the National Museum of Natural History. While at the Smithsonian, he served as Chair of the Ethnology Division and established with William Merrill the Smithsonian Series in Ethnographic Inquiry. It was also during this period that Karp began to critically examine museum practice, concepts of identity and agency, and systems of representation in relation to museum exhibits. He and Steven Lavine organized two major conferences on museums and co-edited the resulting conference proceedings: Exhibiting Cultures: The Poetics and Politics of Museum Display (1991) and Museums and Communities: The Politics of Public Culture (1992).

In 1993, Karp left the Smithsonian to direct the Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts (1993-1996) at Emory University. He also served as director of the university's Institute of African Studies (1996-1999) and the Emory Center for International Studies (1996-1999). In addition, he cofounded and codirected with Corinne Kratz, his second wife, the Center for the Study of Public Scholarship (CSPS) from 1994 to 2009 and the Grant Writing Program from 1992 to 2011. Through the CSPS, he and Kratz also established and codirected the Institutions of Public Culture program, a collaboration with South African colleagues that brought together scholars of public culture from universities, museums, NGOs, political and arts organizations and related institutions (2000-2008). Karp also continued to facilitate discussions on museums, working with Kratz and his colleagues at the Rockefeller Foundation to organize a series of international workshops and a conference in 2002 on museums and globalization. He coedited Museum Frictions: Public Cultures/Global Transformations (2006), a collection of papers presented at the conference.

Karp retired from teaching at Emory University in May 2011 but planned to continue working with the Laney Graduate School's Grant Writing Program until full retirement in August 2013. Not long after finishing his last graduate seminar, Ivan Karp died at the age of 68 on September 17, 2011 in New Mexico.

Emory

Collection Creator:
Karp, Ivan  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1994 - 2010
Scope and Contents:
This folder holds material from the many administrative positions and committees Karp chaired at Emory. The free-standing files in the "EMORY" folder concern three main projects: A) Dean Robert Paul asked Karp to lead a committee to review and redefine Emory College policies on research support and leave in the Humanities and Social Sciences. B) Dean Paul also later asked Karp to assist Sam Cherribi in developing a concept, structure and proposal for a unit called Emory Development Initiative (predating the Development Studies program at Emory). The unit was also to raise funds from donors (the suffix JPA on one file indicates that Jennifer Arnett from the development office worked on the draft). Karp helped Cherribi with reports, drafts, proposals etc. and EDI worked with CSPS on some programs. C) Dean Lisa Tedesco asked Karp to work with Rosemary Hynes of the Graduate School to redesign the program of graduate student research funding and conference funding. Other files here are a) a draft of the terms Karp and Kratz were discussing with the dean in relation to the first retirement agreement they negotiated (this was later changed and full retirement postponed until August 2013); b) draft language Karp was sending to the Vice Provost for International concerning a letter nominating Kratz for Emory's Creekmore award; and c) comments on the draft report that would be part of the review of the Office of International Affairs and Vice Provost for International at the time, Holli Semetko.

Kratz divided other Emory material into a series of subfolders. See specific notes on "CSPS" subfolder for the wide-ranging work done through the Center for the Study of Public Scholarship. Other subfolders:

"Development_Studies" covers some of the work Karp did as co-chair (with Rick Doner) of the Arts and Sciences Development Studies Steering Committee, appointed to develop the structure and intellectual foci of a Development Studies Program at Emory. The committee met initially for a semester, then extended. Included are draft memos for the dean to send to committee members, a report that outlines the proposed program and budget, memos to administrators to followup on resources committed. "DevelopmentStudiesResourcesFlowchart2.doc" adapts a flowchart Kratz created for the Grant Writing Program to Development Studies. The committee predated the Laney Graduate School's involvement in and development of the Masters in Development Practice program. Emory College did start a Development Studies program based on the work of this committee.

"FORD" covers initiatives from when Karp was directing both the Institute of African Studies (IAS) and the Emory Center for International Studies (ECIS) (1996-1999) as well as some later, related work. This involved a number of outside foundation grants. There were grants from the Ford Foundation's Crossing Borders program through ECIS, and IAS had a Ford grant for a program called African Initiatives in Knowledge (AIK) working with other Atlanta universities. There was a second funding round for the latter program, which was applied for, but relations in the university consortium were fraying and the other universities decided to have their own focus rather than work together (files for their separate projects are in this folder). That was not funded.There was also a second round of funding through Ford's Crossing Border's program in 1999. When that opportunity arose Karp decided to assist and promote a colleague to develop the next phase, so he worked with Bruce Knauft to create the Vernacular Modernities program as the followup (draft in file "fordbecky.txt"). In 1997 Karp also led Emory's submission to the Mellon Foundation for a Sawyer Seminar; files relating to that include the overall framing introduction ("SAWYER") and the specific proposal he developed with Abdullahi An-Naim ("MELLON_SAWYER"). Files include draft proposals and budgets, draft text by various colleagues who were working together on the proposals and the two working groups of the Crossing Borders program (Comparative Postcolonial Culture and Comparative Development and Industrialization), memos to Emory and Ford administration, and announcements to recruit the graduate student fellows for the Crossing Borders program. Several files address the future of ECIS; Karp had been mandated to restructure it and to propose a larger organization to consolidate area studies and comparative work at Emory.

Also included in the"FORD" folder is a position paper that Karp was invited to write for Ford (the file "FORD2" is one version of it) as they were rethinking their area studies programs and funding. This was all happening in the mid-late 1990s, when there was a rethinking of area studies and its Cold War origins across a number of organizations. This paper eventually became his 1997 publication "Does Theory Travel? Area Studies and Cultural Studies".

"ILA", "ILA_CultureHistoryTheory" and "ILA_MEMOS" contain work related to Karp's home department at Emory, the Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts. He directed the ILA from 1993-1996. Files in "ILA_MEMOS" come entirely from this period and cover routine administrative matters with faculty and office staff. "ILA_CultureHistory Theory" contains files from 2000-2001 when the conceptual, intellectual and curricular structure of the ILA was under revision, as summarized in the letter to Dean Robert Paul included. The folder "ILA" contains miscellaneous files: comments to an ILA colleague on her book proposal, an unapproved proposal by another faculty member to develop a science program in the ILA, comments by Stan Katz on public scholarship initiatives begun in the ILA from an ILA external review, a memo to ILA graduate students concerning their required attendance at a programming series on public scholarship that Karp coordinated for the ILA, a To Do list about students and recommendation letters for colleagues that Karp had to do.

Subfolder "CSPS": Karp founded the Center for the Study of Public Scholarship (CSPS) within the ILA a year or so after moving to Emory. CSPS was the base from which Karp successfully applied for a Rockefeller Foundation Humanities residency program with three different theme years. Randy Packard directed the first year, Karp and Kratz codirected the second year, and Dana White and Rick Beard directed the third. After that program Karp and Kratz jointly developed a new proposal for Rockefeller with their South African colleagues and received support for the Institutions of Public Culture (IPC) program, which continued until around 2008, with support from Emory in the final years. The structure of CSPS as a center within the ILA was renegotiated around 2000 or so and CSPS moved out of the ILA and began to report directly to the dean as a freestanding center. At that time Karp and Kratz began to co-direct CSPS and they were seconded from their academic departments to run CSPS and the IPC program and develop associated programming and teaching. It was around this time also that they developed the Grant Writing Program, initially running workshops and forums for both graduate students and for faculty, but later dropping the faculty component (see folder on Grant Writing Workshop). CSPS was shut down by Emory along with a number of other interdisciplinary programs and centers during the financial crisis of 2008-2009. CSPS closed at the end of March 2009.

Material in this folder relates to administration and activities of CSPS during its existence. This includes budget memos, files on staff (annual review, position description, RIF), some annual reports. It also includes memos and notes concerning CSPS-ILA relations, the terms of the change of structure and Karp and Kratz's secondments, as well as files related to a few workshops and speakers series they organized. Some files relate to the IPC program: lists of fellows, fellows obligations, fellows' reports. Other CSPS activities represented in the folder: a) Karp and Kratz were Emory's liaison to the national Imagining America program; b) for several years Karp and Kratz collaborated with the Smithsonian's Folklife program to offer summer fellowships for Emory graduate students in Washington DC; c) Karp and Kratz held regular biweekly seminar meetings as part of the IPC that students on the program took as a course and postdocs attended as a work-in-progress seminar, called South African Public Culture. ILA grad students for some years were required to fulfill a public scholarship requirement by attending a number of lectures, events, etc. drawn from CSPS activities that were organized under the rubric the Workshop in Public Scholarship. Karp administered this for the ILA. The folder also contains files related to two Emory-internal grant proposals Karp and Kratz developed--one for a temporary funding program called Collaborative Research in the Humanities grant program (CritH) and another for a short-lived funding program through the Institute of Developing Nations (IDN). They also developed a faculty seminar on Public Scholarship through the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) that they ran in Spring 2011 (NOT 2010 as in the files – it was postponed a year) with the CFDE director Laurie Patton and Emory faculty who applied to participate, including a couple who received fellowships for their projects. The folder contains several files related to this. The folder also contains a proposal that Karp was commenting on for colleagues at Indiana University who were applying for a Rockefeller Humanities residency grant in 2002, and a proposal to the Coca Cola Foundation that Karp and Kratz were advising the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute about and communication about a Rockefeller proposal and grant that they helped their colleagues in South Africa (L. Witz and C. Rassool) get for the museums and heritage program in Cape Town.

The subfolder "RF Proposal" contains files related to the Rockefeller Foundation grants, including proposals from 1996 and 1999, fellows' reports and annual reports for both programs, administrative correspondance with the provost and deans at Emory about the IPC proposal, documents in preparation for a site visit by Rockefeller that was done before the initial Humanities residency program. The folder also contains proposals written by Karp and Kratz's Cape Town colleagues for several programs and projects that they created, which served as material and background for their codeveloped projects (these are listed under the files with names Witz and Bunn). Karp also kept a copy of his paper on "Public Scholarship as a Vocation" here as a resource when working on proposals.
