Friday November 4, Caitlin DeSilvey will give the paper "Beyond Saving: Care Without Conservation". The seminar is organised in an informal, colloquial style and is open to all interested.
Caitlin DeSilvey is Associate Professor of Cultural Geography at the University of Exeter’s Penryn Campus. Her research explores the cultural significance of material and environmental change, with a particular focus on heritage contexts. She has worked closely with environmental scientists, artists, archaeologists, photographers and heritage practitioners on a range of interdisciplinary projects, supported by funding from UK research councils (AHRC, EPSRC, NERC), the Royal Geographical Society, the Norwegian Research Council and the European Social Fund. Her recent publications include Anticipatory History (2011, with Simon Naylor and Colin Sackett) and Visible Mending (2013, with Steven Bond and James R. Ryan). Her forthcoming work Curated Decay: Heritage Beyond Saving, will be published by the University of Minnesota Press in 2017.
The seminar takes place in the Turret room (top floor) at CAS, at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (Drammensveien 78) and starts at 14:15. Entrance is on the east side of the building (ring door bell if locked).
