Material Culture Symposium for Emerging Scholars
The Winterthur Museum, Delaware
Saturday, April 17, 2004
The planning committee of the Material Culture Symposium for Emerging
Scholars, is pleased to announce that on-line registration is now
This free symposium provides emerging scholars with a venue for promoting
interdisciplinary dialogues about material culture. By freeing scholars of
chronological and topical restraints, we seek to encourage conversation
across perceived boundaries of discipline, medium and methodology.
Createdand organized by University of Delaware graduate students, this
symposium is the only such interdisciplinary event at the graduate student level. It is a forum for emerging scholars to present and discuss their work, and brings together new and established scholars to foster interdisciplinary
camaraderie and exchange.
We invite graduate students and scholars, as well as the general public
This year, twelve students from nine institutions-including departments of
Anthropology, American Studies, History, Art History, Museum Studies
and programs in the History of American Civilization and the Winterthur
Program in Early American Culture-will present papers. We are honored to have as audience discussion leaders and panel commentators Dr. Kathleen Adair Foster, Dr. Lu Ann De Cunzo, Dr. Amanda Kemp, and Ms. Kym Rice, and to have the summary address by Dr. Ann Smart Martin.
