Object Lessons from Tibet & the Himalayas

A new research network  'Object Lessons from Tibet & the Himalayas' will be launched with a one-day seminar on the 9th June at the University of Manchester, UK. The seminar will bring together researchers working with the visual and material culture of Tibet and the Himalayas. In particular, the network will think about the roles of things in the production, loss and recovery of knowledge, both in the colonial past and the present. 

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

Speakers include: 

The seminar fee is £20 (includes lunch and all refreshments). 

Please contact Emma Martin: emma.martin-2@manchester.ac.uk if you wish to book a place.
