The Material Culture Symposium provides emerging scholars with a venue for interdisciplinary dialogue centering on material culture. Freeing scholars of chronological and topical restraints, this symposium encourages discussion across perceived boundaries of time, space and discipline. While the conference is a scholarly one, we actively encourage participation from the general public, including interested public policy and preservation professionals. This symposium is currently the only such annual interdisciplinary event devoted to material culture scholarship at the graduate student level. It offers a forum for discussing emerging scholars’ work, and brings together emerging and established scholars to foster interdisciplinary camaraderie and exchange.
The Symposium will take place on April 23, 2005 at the Copeland Lecture Hall, Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library, in Winterthur, Delaware. We encourage any interested parties to register online at materialculture.udel.edu. There are also tours of Winterthur, Historic New Castle, and sites in Philadelphia available to registrants (first come, first served). We look forward to seeing you there.
