Sensory overload: soundscapes, scents, and visions that criss-crossed the Americas
For Lent Term we gather experts emphasising archaeologies of the Americas’ sensorial worlds: sound, scent, taste, sight, and touch to explore themes of human-environmental impact and agency. This ‘double dialogue’ half-day conference combines the remaining speakers for the term, featuring two sessions for more in-depth discussion and exploration.
- Élodie Dupey García (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México)
- Christina Gish Hill (Iowa State University)
- Celine Erauw (University of Cambridge)
‘Lingering Sights, Scents, and Tastes’ will explore visual cues and optical tools employed by experts to reveal the macro and micro aspects of human-visual traces in colourants and indigenous pigmentation as well as revelations about scent and taste worlds of the past that inform the present. Speakers and the engaged dialogue with the audience will help us rethink the past with experts in anthropology, archaeology, art history and history.
