Conference: Changing Global Hierarchies of Value? Museums, artifacts, frames, and flows

Museums are said to classify the world; but the world is changing, and so are the museum worlds and the worlds of arts and artefacts. This conference explores how the world is imagined and classified through the presentation, interpretation and classification of artifacts; and how the global hierarchy of value (cf. Herzfeld 2004) might be changing in through these flows and circulations.

When and where:
The International Conference will take place at The National Museum of Denmark and at The University of Copenhagen, 20-22 August 2018. The conference is convened by professor Oscar Salemink, Amélia Siegel Corrêa PhD, Jens Sejrup PhD, Caroline Lillelund, and Vibe Nielsen, who make up the research team for the Global Europe project.
