Planetary Histories

The RCMC invites you to the third Global Earth Matters workshop on Silver & Resource Futures.

Earth Matters in the Museum: Planetary Entanglements and Precarities is an RCMC workshop that will explore the possibilities of tracing, writing and imagining planetary histories and futures through ethnographic collections.

Materiality plays an important role in shaping our understanding of the world around us.  Global Earth Matters: Mining, Materiality and the Museum is a series of seminars that seek to re-center scholarly interest in the materiality of objects, opening onto broader questions of labor and making, skills and craftsmanship, on issues surrounding the (exploitative) economies from which these objects emerge.
