Abstract [en]

The article proposes comparative outlines fora cosmopolitan history of archaeology, definedby mobility, translation and networks. Increasedinternational mobility and stronger impact ofsupranational organisations such as UNESCO, nowcall for alternative historical frameworks beyond nation-states, to understand archaeology, heritage,and artefact collections. We depart from one particular case – the professional life and trajectoryof archaeologist Olov R.T. Janse (1892-1985) who worked in Scandinavia, France, Indochina, for USintelligence, and UNESCO – and propose a number of themes and characteristics to enable ana-lytical comparisons with other examples of cosmopolitan archaeology.
