This sixth symposium in the School of World Art and Museology series will focus on collecting as a human behaviour and artistic practice. The action has the possibility of shaping both what is collected as well as defining the character of the collector. Topics could include: collecting cultures, collecting as an art, cabinets of curiosities, found objects or the psychology of collecting.
This annual symposium is a multidisciplinary event, where postgraduate students working on relevant topics in the fields of art history, anthropology, archaeology, cultural heritage and museology can present their work in a friendly and non-confrontational atmosphere.
The symposium is open to all but will be of particular interest to postgraduates and advanced undergraduates. Please contact Beverley Youngman to register, via email; email@example.com. An abstract of no more than 250 words for a twenty-minute paper should be submitted by Friday 30th of March 2007.
