Visual and Material Culture Postgraduate Exchange
History graduate students Nora Carleson, Harriette Lane and Erica Lome will be joining Professor Zara Anishanslin at the inaugural Postgraduate Exchange in Visual and Material Culture at Queen Mary University of London January 17-19, 2018. Students and faculty will spend three-days exploring methods, approaches, and new research in Visual and Material Culture. The exchange offers postgraduate students a chance to present research where their primary evidence base is visual and material culture. Participants will also have an opportunity to take part in a workshop to explore theoretical approaches to material culture, attend a keynote address, as well as a hands-on workshop in historic plaster making and a private tour of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The material culture symposium, Domesticating Revolution, will feature Dr. Anishanslin as the event’s keynote speaker where she will present “Patriotic Women, Military Men and the Material Culture of Bringing Battle Home.”
