The Material Witness blog is up!
Material Witness is an interdisciplinary training program for PhD students from the seven UK universities that makes up the CHASE consortium – The Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths, the Open University, and the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex.
The Material Witness workshops have ranged from manuscript handling sessions at the British Library to discussions on the implications of digitalizing art collections. By taking place outside the classroom and by welcoming PhD students from varied backgrounds, this series has championed the interdisciplinary approaches that characterize today’s most cutting-edge scholarship. At the same time, the opportunity to handle works of art reminds participants of the pleasures and responsibilities of original doctoral-level research.
