Connecting Materialities / Material Connectivities
This symposium aims at collectively thinking through connectivity and materiality. It sets out to trace histories, dissect theories, scrutinize methodologies and contextualize ethnographies from a variety of different settings, disciplinary backgrounds, and strands of thought. Working across the boundaries between anthropology, archaeology, area studies and art, our objective is to bring these threads into dialogue in order to develop a conceptual frame through which "connecting materialities/material connectivities" can be approached, studied and understood as transcultural, transregional and global phenomena.
Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Mark Aldenderfer (University of California Merced USA), Inge Daniels (University of Oxford), Amiria Salmond (University of Auckland, New Zealand and University of Cambridge UK), Gilian Tan (Deakin University Australia).
