‘Objects of Inquiry: Ways of Seeing, Ways of Knowing in the Humanities’

I will contribute to a panel this evening at the University of Wyoming Art Museum, about the status of objects in humanities research. The occasion for our panel is a visit from Jim Harris, the Andrew W Mellon Foundation Teaching Curator in the University Engagement Programme of the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in the University of Oxford. The Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research also hosted Jim in December 2014, when he gave this talk (video below). My comments tonight will draw in part from my thinking on the materiality of archives. Thank you to Isadora Helfgott (UW History) for organizing the panel.
