Abstract

This session will be an active experiment in interdisciplinary approaches to a number of objects. Participants are encouraged to bring their own comments on how they would set about responding to the objects from their own (inter)disciplinary perspectives. Panel members will open the session by outlining their own responses to the objects, and will then invite contributions from everyone present. Images of the objects to be discussed will be made available before and during the IMC on www.alarichall.org.
Participants include Catherine J. Batt (University of Leeds), Alaric Hall (University of Glasgow), and Elisabeth E. Salter (University of Kent).
