Within studies of early modern material culture, we seem to have much more knowledge about the motivations for collecting, and how specific objects enter a collection, than how and why certain objects were used once inside. In order to generate a discussion of this issue using the broadest definition of the term ‘collection’ (including cabinets, museums, sculpture galleries, literary miscellanies, menageries, herbaria, gardens, houses), this one-day symposium will bring together early modern scholars of several disciplines in order to showcase their work across a variety of collections: anatomical, domestic, royal, antiquarian, military, natural historical, literary and artistic.
We will be closing the booking for this discussion on #gendered workloads in #academia tomorrow afternoon, to allow full and frank discussion, the event will NOT be recorded, so if you would like to be part of the conversation, please reserve your place ASAP. twitter.com/gemmaouten/sta…
