Dear all - Please find details of a new Oxford-UCL seminar series below. DH
Capitalism as Artefact (Politics and Heritage)
A seminar from the Museum of Capitalism (Andrea Steves and Timothy Furstnau)
Lecture Room, St Cross College, Oxford
2pm-4pm, Friday 23 November 2018
Politics And Heritage is a new termly seminar series convened by Dan Hicks (School of Archaeology and Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford) and Mike Rowlands (Anthropology, UCL). Beginning in November 2018, the series will hold three seminars per year — once per term — alternating between London and Oxford. The seminars will explore the different ways in which anthropological and archaeological approaches to the material world can inform our understanding of the forms of politics that emerge around cultural heritage.
The first seminar will take place from 2pm-4pm on Friday 23 November 2018, in the Lecture Room of St Cross College, Oxford. Andrea Steves and Timothy Furstnau from Oakland, California will speak on the topic of Capitalism as Artefact - exploring their Museum of Capitalism project, and its relationships with the political dimensions of contemporary archaeology, contemporary collecting, and the politics of museum display. Details of a further seminar in Spring 2019 will be announced in the New Year.
