Section Information for Fall 2020
This course explores material culture and museums within their cultural contexts. We will study the materials, forms, and meanings of handmade cultural artifacts and look at the production, circulation, and use of the objects in communities. We will examine how the objects communicate shared experiences, express community ideas and values, represent group identities, and mark difference. This course will also address the question of how museums collate and share human experiences through objects and familiarize students with the collection, documentation, preservation, display, and interpretation of objects in museums.
