Objects present uniquely compelling and complex tools for teaching and research.  This multidisciplinary two-day online workshop aims to strengthen our use of material culture in teaching by exploring object-centred teaching practices through a blend of papers, practical sessions and roudtable discussions.

We are doctoral researchers working across UK university and museum departments.  The event is supported by the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership consortium.
