AHT269 The Global Lives of Objects: Material Culture in Context

Wed, 12.30-2.30pm, Red Theatre, Priya Vaughan and Molly Duggins


This course examines global material culture and the rich diversity of objects and the processes, knowledge, and meanings embedded therein. Taking a broad, cross-cultural and multi-temporal approach, the course will explore key themes in the study of material culture including: production, use, circulation, exchange, consumption, commodification, colonialism, and haptic and sensorial engagements. Focusing on the cultural biographies of objects students will consider how historical and contemporary objects connect with, undermine, or complicate notions of art, taste, authenticity, tradition, value, identity, and nationhood broadly defined. Building on the material turn in art history, this course aims to explore productive interdisciplinary methodologies for engaging with objects.
