Seminar: Object Lessons from Tibet & the Himalayas

This seminar brings together university academics and museum curators working with the visual and material culture of Tibet and the Himalayas. In particular, we will think about the roles of things in the production, loss and recovery of knowledge, both in the colonial past and the present.

This seminar will appeal to anyone interested in collecting and looting in British India, imperial knowledge production, travel writing, History of Science, ‘local’ or indigenous knowledge, and the representation of people and places in the museum.

Speakers include:
Prof. Clare Harris, University of Oxford
Dr. Trine Brox & Dr Miriam Koktvedgaard Zeitzen, University of Copenhagen
Dr. Diana Lange, Humboldt University Berlin
Dr. Emma Martin, University of Manchester & National Museums Liverpool
