Metals & Memory Event - Session 1

The Jackman Humanities Institute Program for the Arts and Victoria College are pleased to present a series of three events:

Metals and Memory Series

Metals conjure ideas of firmness, longevity and durability. Memory conjures ideas of fluidity, uncertainty, and intangibility. In a series of public discussions, Metals and Memory explores the ways these two things are entwined. Invited panelists will consider how various metals make up not only everyday items, but also embody political alliances, connectivities, geological memory, and human ingenuity. This series aims to open provacative perspectives in thinking about the relationships between metals and memory.
