UCL Arts and Humanities

This two-day conference, held at and in collaboration with the British School at Rome, examines the intimate link between material sites and creative knowledge production, with specific attention to the museum and the classroom.

We will explore 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 will share perspectives on the history and practice of display, interpretation, and object-based learning.

We are particularly interested in exploring the role of interdisciplinary and interartistic practices in the museum and classroom space.

The conference is linked to the HARC funded project Interdisciplinary Italy 1900-2020: Interart/Intermedia, and two themes in the BSR research strategy: heritage management and sustainability, and History, Place and Imagination.
