Abstract:This volume is a tribute to Belgian anthropologist Danielle de Lame (Royal Museum for Central Africa), whose work on Africa has always favoured an approach disentangling the contradiction of day-to-day relationships between 'top' and 'bottom', representations of the Self, ties between the Self and objects, and the management of differences and hierarchy.
