Legal Object Workshop 2017

This one day workshop is funded by Kent Law School, is part of the Legal Treasure Project and takes place at the British Museum in London on 10.03.17. The workshop is coordinated by Amanda Perry-Kessaris with Lisa DicksonLuis EslavaSydney Parfitt and Sophie Vigneron.

Each participant will present an object from the collection, locating it within their own research agenda as well as addressing wider questions posed by its status as a collected object.

Participants will also design and share a trace of their presentation, which may take any form (audio, text, image, object…).

Finally participants will use drawing and modelling as on site investigative tools to take their relationship with the object further.

Following the workshop each participant will produce an object commentary for publication.
