Material World

Material World is an interactive, online hub for contemporary debates, discussion, thinking and research centred on material and visual culture. It is the brainchild of scholars working in the anthropology departments of University College London and New York University, but aims to create a new international community of academics, students, curators, artists and anyone else with particular interests in material and visual culture.

We will use this digital framework to post exhibition, book and other reviews; discuss key topics; develop online reading groups and symposia; post links to images, objects and collections; highlight cutting edge research and fieldwork, conferences, meetings and other events; develop teaching resources and syllabi; and encourage student participation. In short we will start the posting but we want YOU to participate in making this a genuinely interactive and lively space.

The weblog’s chief editors are: Haidy Geismar (Anthropology and Museum Studies, New York University), Daniel Miller (Anthropology, University College London), and Graeme Were (University Museum Collections, University College London).
