Thinking About 'Things' (TAT): Interdisciplinary Futures in Material Culture
10 to 12 May 2010
Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
Contact name: Sarah Conrad Gothie
An international and interdisciplinary graduate student conference designed to explore material culture and the ways in which we create it, interact with it, use it, discard it, and study it.
Organized by: University of Michigan
Deadline for abstracts/proposals: 20 February 2010
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
