Objects in the World

The Objects in the World working group represents a transdisciplinary effort, emerging from an intra-departmental faculty collaboration of Anthropology and History of Art, to construct a community for graduate students from diverse scholarly backgrounds to together think critically with objects. Students are challenged over the course of an academic year first to become acquainted with the wide, varied corpus of “Materiality” and “New Materialisms” scholarship and then to acquire first-hand experience situating their own research within this larger canon of transdisciplinary work on objects. In light of these goals, the group’s name, Objects in the World, refers not only to the study of objects as research subjects but also to the acknowledgment of the presence of scholars within and alongside rather than apart from the object worlds under analysis.
