Details on the ICMA and Material Collective sponsored sessions at Kalamazoo.
Bennett’s book and the concept of vibrant materiality have brought a new significance to my life and work.
Upcoming Material Collective events, including two sessions at the BABEL meeting in Boston in September. Plus, highlights of some past events.
Together, we will unmask our true selves, telling our stories and sharing our hopes for real change. Rather than coping silently, we want to call for real progressive action among medievalists.
What drew us to each other? A shared vision for working together to explore new ideas. A shared desire to reveal the natural connections between our personal stories and our academic work as medievalists. A shared frustration with the sometimes static culture of Art History.
The Material Collective Manifesto, as read and performed at the International Congress on Medieval Studies.
