Four forthcoming talks

I'm giving a number of talks in London, Oxford and Reading over the next month. Details are below:

Thursday 17th March 2011, 6pm - 8pm



What is a Fragment? Forms of the Material, the Cultural, & the Interdisciplinary (The Courtauld Institute)

Lecture for 'The Material Life of Things' Research Project, Courtauld Institute.

Discussant: Professor Danny Miller (UCL) .

This paper reflects upon the status of the idea of 'the fragment' in contemporary interdisciplinary material culture studies. In doing so, it uses anthropological thinking to interrogate how we comprehend the forms that the material, the cultural, and the interdisciplinary can take in the study of things.
