Germain Loumpet

July - August 2005

Germain Loumpet took his degrees in prehistory, archaeology, and anthropology in Paris before returning to Cameroon, where he served both as director of the National Museum of Cameroon Project and as an advisor to the ministry of culture in Cameroon. He also reorganized the Bamun Palace Museum and has made two films on rituals in the Kingdom of Bamun. 

While at the Clark, he and his wife, Clark Fellow Alexandra Galatzine Loumpet, are writing their extensive fieldwork and developing an interpretation of modernity among the Bamun in West Cameroon, as reflected through art, writing, and other cultural systems.
