Teaching Material Culture

Zoom - registration required
Monday 31 October 2022 (15:00-17:00)

This event has been organised by the Centre for Material Cultures and Materialities at the University of Birmingham in collaboration with the Center for Design and Material Culture at UW-Madison.

Material culture studies is a distinctly inter-disciplinary field. Yet, in teaching our students about the exciting possibilities offered by material culture studies, our lessons are often shaped by our own disciplinary training. This event seeks to uncover how material culture approaches are taught in different disciplines to rethink how it might be taught and engaged with more broadly. 

The discussion panel will be chaired by Kate Nichols (Art History, Birmingham) and feature Sarah Anne Carter (Center for Design and Material Culture, UW-Madison), Marina Moskowitz (Center for Design and Material Culture, UW-Madison) Sophie Pitman (Center for Design and Material Culture, UW-Madison), Daniel Reynolds (Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, Birmingham) and Kate Smith (History, Birmingham).

This event is open to everyone.
