Sites of Cultural Agency: Creative Knowledge Production in the Arts and Humanities
British School at Rome
17-18 October 2019
This two-day conference, held at and in collaboration with the British School at Rome, examined the intimate link between material sites and creative knowledge production, with specific attention to the museum and the classroom. The conference explored how spatial configurations produce meaning, and how critical, creative practice can inform and transform our understanding of space. Museum curators, visual artists, actors and scholars from the creative and applied humanities shared perspectives on the history and practice of display, interpretation, and object-based learning. The conference was particularly interested in exploring the role of interdisciplinary and interartistic practices in the museum and classroom space.
My talk looked at spaces of experience beyond the immersive economy.
