Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are obliged to operate in line with the Dutch government’s most recent announcements. After careful consideration with all parties involved, we have to come to the difficult decision to postpone the Summer School Museum Objects as Evidence until 4 -15 January 2021. Our goal is to keep the programme largely unchanged, including the daily themes and line-up of speakers. Please note that the application for this Winter School is closed.
In this Winter programme you will examine objects from a range of disciplinary perspectives and approaches, consider the types of information they generate and unravel the stories they can tell. Experts in the field will provide you with an exclusive and in-depth look behind the scenes in the conservation studios, science laboratories and museum departments.
From 4 -15 January 2021, the Rijksmuseum, the University of Amsterdam, and Bard Graduate Center will offer an interdisciplinary Winter School devoted to object-based research within a museum setting. Experts in the field will provide participants with an exclusive and in-depth look at the technical, analytic, and interpretive work going on behind the scenes in the conservation studios, science laboratories, and curatorial departments. By focusing on how material objects provide primary evidence for historical research, this collaborative course introduces multiple techniques and perspectives for extracting the types of information museum objects generate, and unraveling the many stories they can tell.
