Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Objects and possessions define us, yet in many ways we know little about them from a historical perspective. This interdisciplinary conference looks at material culture across a long timeframe in order to explore the worlds of goods and objects across Europe and its overseas colonies, the connections and relationships facilitated by the exchange of goods, the importance and interpretation of the inheritance of goods and objects, and the ways in which goods brokered relationships between Europe and the wider world in this period. The aim is to deepen our understanding of how goods 'worked' in a variety of social, economic and cultural contexts. Keynote speakers include Dr Chris Briggs (Cambridge); Professor Giorgio Riello (Warwick); Dr Christer Petley (Southampton); and Professor Chris Woolgar (Southampton).
