The Contemporary Past Revisited: A Conversation between Victor Buchli and Gavin Lucas
Tuesday 3 November, 2pm-4.30pm
Lecture Room, Pitt Rivers Museum
On Tuesday 3 November, we'll be hosting a conversation between two leading archaeological thinkers, Professor Gavin Lucas (University of Iceland) and Professor Victor Buchli (UCL).
Chaired by Dan Hicks, the conversation will revisit Victor and Gavin's seminal edited volume Archaeologies of the Contemporary Past (Routledge 2001), before tracing the overlapping and distinct lines of thought that have developed in their work over the past 15 years.
The conversation will explore Gavin's books The Archaeology of Time (2004) and Understanding the Archaeological Record (2012), alongside Victor's works An Anthropology of Architecture (2013) and most recently An Archaeology of the Immaterial (2015).
