Emil Holub

Tomáš Winter (ed.)
Authors: Martin Šámal, Ondřej Crhák, Petr Valenta, Tomáš Winter

This book, dedicated to the Czech explorer Dr. Emil Holub, focuses on four primary themes. These themes shed light on Dr. Holub’s importance in the contemporary world while touching upon more general and current issues, such as the presentation of ethnographic and artistic collections, the discourse concerning museum decolonization, or the process of shaping national identity. The aim of this publication is to stimulate a discussion that fosters a better understanding of Dr. Holub’s legacy today. The objective is to present Dr. Holub’s persona in a balanced manner, free from fictional embellishments, myths, and ideologically manipulated narratives. Instead, it strives to portray him in his natural complexity, encompassing both the positive and negative aspects.
