Event description

Description

Let’s put the materiality of replicas under the microscope!

Join us to explore the ‘object-ness’ of copies through a consideration of their own unique materials and manufacturing processes. After the success of Lasting Impressions 2018, which focused on the institutional role of the replica, the next study day aims to challenge notions of value in relation to reproductions, especially concepts of ‘(un)originality’ and ‘aura’. We aim to consider how making reproductions constitutes its own form of knowledge construction, questioning how changes in materiality through the reproduction process impacts upon the form, function and meaning of objects in museums and beyond.

The study day will comprise a morning session of conference-style presentations, complemented in the afternoon by an interactive pop-up exhibition. Tours of reproduction galleries across Oxford University Museums will complete the programme.

A number of travel bursaries (up to £60 per person) are available thanks to CNCS and AHRC. When you register your attendance at the study day, please state whether you wish to request a travel bursary. The successful bursary applicants will be contacted in due course. Priority will be given to CDP students and CNCS members. Bursaries will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
