27 Sep 2012 - 28 Sep 2012All dayCRASSH

Description

This year CRASSH has hosted a Graduate Research Group concerned with Things: Material Cultures of the Long Eighteenth-Century. Our speakers have considered specific eighteenth-century objects ranging from coins to ships, porcelain to plants, from different disciplinary perspectives.  We have discussed how these objects allow us to tell complex. inter-disciplinary stories about consumption, production and display in this period.  This colloquium pulls together the speakers and themes that have defined the series.  The day will consist of several papers with invited responses, as well as space for discussion. The colloquium is preceded by a keynote lecture by Professor Ludmilla Jordanova  on Thursday evening, Talking about Things.
