Animal Materials as Multiple: Historical Problems in "Reading Animals"
- 15:30 to 17:00
- Dept. III
Animal traces have been unstable entities that scientists and practitioners have historically examined in different ways across multiple fields. This exploratory workshop is a space for scholars and practitioners in the humanities and sciences to discuss methodological, technical, political, and ethical challenges and responsibilities that come with endeavors of “reading animal materials,” that is, visualizing, analyzing, and characterizing objects derived from animal bodies. Through multidisciplinary discussion bridging archaeologists, museum conservators, and historians, we strive to deepen our mutual understandings about how animal materials are studied and cared for as historical objects.
This workshop is envisioned as a plural environment for ideas exchange through a series of roundtable discussions and presentations.
