Description

Science meets humanities in this seminar exploring the notion of 'travelling companions'. This seminar is held in conjunction with the exhibition Travelling Companions (2 March – 10 April 2020) at the Alison Richard Building. We invite you to join an interdisciplinary panel to discuss how familiar objects can act as emotional and intellectual travelling companions, both in actual time and as remembered (internalised) objects, their function and the stories they tell changing over the course of a lifetime. From a personal belonging charged with significance to a star guiding you across the globe, join us to investigate this theme.
