Dr Giovanna Vitelli (Ashmolean): ‘Thinking with Objects: the impact of material culture on disciplinary boundaries, teaching practices, and eighteenth-century studies’
The second installment of RECSO’s Trinity Term seminar series, ‘Crossing the Disciplines’, this seminar will explore the potential for cross-disciplinary learning and teaching in the long eighteenth century, and present recent case studies of successful collaboration. The title, ‘Thinking with Objects’, also reflects faculty interest in the enhanced research potential being offered by the “material turn” in the humanities.
An additional material handling session at the Ashmolean with Dr Vitelli, will take place in the afternoon of Tuesday 27 May. There will be 12 spaces, and participants will be invited to sign up following Tuesday’s seminar, or by emailing the RECSO coordinator.
