'Tracing Temporalities, Unearthing Collections' Workshop
Organized by the COST Action Trace as a Research Agenda for Climate Change, Technology Studies, and Social Justice (TRACTS), the workshop Tracing Temporalities, Unearthing Collections will critically explore the ethics of collections in museums and geological archives through the lens of temporality. The hybrid event seeks to ignite an interdisciplinary exchange between disparate fields of inquiry. Using a range of case studies of collections and (earth) archives, we dig into the ethics of acquisition, preservation, interpretation, use, and re-activation of this material today and explore its potential for the future. Apart from a range of exciting speakers, the event includes three keynotes by Andrea Ballestero, Pratik Chakrabarti and Daniela Agostinho.
The event will be
held on April 27-28, 2023 in Potsdam and Berlin, and is co-organized by the
Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik (HZK), the Integrative Research Institute
on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys) and the Research
Institute for Sustainability (RIFS).
