School of Education

This module will explore material culture from a variety of perspectives. It will draw on the University’s extensive range of museums, collections and archives and the expertise of arts and science academics and heritage professionals. Through object-based learning understood in its broadest sense the module will enable you to critically engage with the material world. It will focus on issues around the collection, interpretation and display of material culture; current debates about ‘ownership’, ethics and public engagement; and the impact of new digital technologies..
