Manchester Met conf: Putting Theory to Work

Summer Institute Director: Maggie MacLure

We are pleased to announce a special exhibition to accompany the forthcoming Summer Institute, for which there are still a few places available.  'Curiosity and Classification: Objects as Incitements to Theory' is organised by the International Centre for Arts and Cultures of Childhood (ICACC). The exhibition brings art and qualitative inquiry together in an engagement with objects, inviting delegates to think about such things as memory, materiality, identity, history, loss and wonder.

Please find attached an outline programme. If you wish to book a place at the Summer Institute, please contact us as soon as possible:
Standard delegate fee: £295
