PG Masterclass on 'Re-Writing Material Culture History'
You are invited to the Masterclass “Re-Writing Material Culture History" with Professor Dana Leibsohn (Smith College, US) and Dr Christina Hellmich (deYoung Museum, San Francisco).
Abstract: Writing Material Culture History was published in 2014 by Bloomsbury Academic as an introduction for students and colleagues to the interdisciplinary methodologies of material culture and history's engagement with object-based research. Edited by Anne Gerritsen and Giorgio Riello, the book has been much used in universities in Europe and North America. Two of the book's contributors, Prof. Dana Leibsohn and Dr Christina Hellmich (contributors to the book) will lead a conversation on how material culture history has changed in the past few years, leading to a revision of the book for a second edition to be published in 2020.
A short reading from the book’s introduction and chapters by Leibsohn and Hellmich can be found here.
