Etnógrafo-misionero, misionero-etnógrafo: Alfred Métraux y John Arnott

Abstract : The paper explores the relationship between Swiss ethnographer Al­fred Métraux and Scottish missionary John Arnott of the South American Mis­ sionary Society, which lasted almost a decade. The reciprocal influence between these individuals is described with regard to both religious and academic fac­tors. The paper also provides an analysis of the historical, social and political context of the Anglican missions in the Argentinian Chaco during 1933-1939, when Métraux did his ethnographic fieldwork.
