The thirty-two participants of this workshop, which is being sponsored and conducted by the Bard Graduate Center and the Chipstone Foundation, will discuss pre-circulated draft papers and abstracts that will form the basis of the Oxford Handbook of History and Material Culture to be edited by the conveners, Ivan Gaskell (Bard Graduate Center) and Sarah Anne Carter (Chipstone Foundation). Their goal is to define, explore, and contribute to the shaping of material culture history, fostering work on the human past from any corner of the Earth at any time.
