This annual symposium provides emerging scholars – graduate students from a variety of academic disciplines -- with a venue for interdisciplinary dialogue centering on material culture. By freeing scholars from chronological and topical restraints, we encourage discussion across perceived boundaries of discipline, medium, and methodology. Created and organized by University of Delaware graduate students, this symposium also provides an opportunity for new and established scholars to foster interdisciplinary camaraderie and exchange focused on object-based research.
Hosted by Winterthur Museum and Country Estate, this fourth annual event brings together graduate students from fields including anthropology, art history, historical archeology, history, and American studies to present their material culture research. We are honored to have audience discussion periods led by this year’s distinguished commentators – Linda Welters, Wendy Bellion, and Ned Cooke. In addition, co-chairs of the Smithsonian’s Material Culture Forum, Anne Collins Goodyear and Tia Powell Harris will present a summary address. We invite both emerging and established scholars, as well as interested members of the public, to join us for an exciting day of new scholarship.
The symposium and special tours are free. We encourage you to pre-register online up until March 15. On-site registration will also be available at the symposium. We require pre-registration for all special tours. Tour space is limited, so register soon! Registration available at http://http://materialculture.udel.edu.
