UD faculty and students are widely recognized for their innovative research in material culture studies. This research takes many forms: from archival work and scholarly articles to art installations and digital exhibitions. The Center’s Working Groups offer faculty and students the opportunity to collaborate and explore new, interdisciplinary ideas through dynamic digital projects, speaker series, reading groups, and site visits.

CMCS faculty and graduate students convene every year in thematic Working Groups to explore current issues in material culture studies. Learn more about CMCS Working Groups past and present — and join a conversation!
