Materiality and the Humanities

Intersections: Time, Materiality and the Humanities, 26-27 November 2015, Sydney

The Australian Academy of the Humanities will be holding its 46th Annual Symposium at the University of Sydney 26-27 November.

The Intersections: Time, Materiality and the Humanities symposium will explore new frontiers in humanities research centred on intersections between objects and timescales.

Scholars from across various disciplines will investigate the ways in which the material world is used, shaped and negotiated over timescales of vastly differing depths. Expanding beyond texts and visual media, materiality also encompasses memories, objects and landscapes. Histories that draw on this broader palette offer new means of envisioning the past, including novel conceptions about ‘Deep Time’ or ‘Big History’.

The Symposium will address a wide range of perspectives on time and materiality in the fields of art practice, cultural studies, philosophy, history, linguistics, heritage, and archaeology. The intersections between these varied perspectives will provide a forum for productive discussion and debate.

The full program and registrations are available here.
