Join the Methods in Material Culture Graduate Working Group for a guided field-trip at the Winterthur Museum!
Anyone who wishes to attend must RSVP to Alexander Ames (email@example.com) by Tuesday, June 20th.
The workshop will begin with object study sessions led by Dr. Catharine Dann Roeber, the Brock W. Jobe Assistant Professor of Decorative Arts and Material Culture and Executive Editor of Winterthur Portfolio; Dr. Tom Guiler, Manager and Instructor in Winterthur's Academic Programs department; Ann Wagner, Curator of Decorative Arts with a specialty in metalwork and organic objects; and Nalleli Guillen, doctoral candidate in the History of American Civilization program at the University of Delaware and graduate of the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture. Following the object study sessions (which will end at noon), we will adjourn to the Winterthur Library, where Jeanne Solensky, librarian in charge of the Joseph Downs Collection of Manuscripts & Printed Ephemera as well as Winterthur's Visual Resources Collection, will share some of the Library's treasures with us. It should be a thought-provoking and informative experience! (You are welcome to attend just the first part of the workshop; i.e., if you need to leave after the object study session to get elsewhere for your afternoon, feel free.)
