The Stories That Objects Tell
Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)
How do objects “tell stories”? Focusing on examples from Jewish material culture and working with ideas from critical theory and poetry, we will consider how objects acquire meaning and value. We will explore the nexus between objects and their “biographies” in both historical, institutional contexts, such as museums and archives, as well as on the level of individual memory. Participants are encouraged to bring an object of some personal significance to the session.
