Object Lives and Global Histories in Northern North America: Networks, Localities and Material Culture c. 1700s-2000s

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Partnership Development Grant awarded 2013: This project will establish a new partnership among selected university and museum institutions in Canada and England. Our aim is to illuminate, in new ways, the global circulation of material culture from and through northern North America - and the ways in which this phenomenon has been and is being understood. We are an interdisciplinary group of university, museum and Aboriginal scholars and knowledge keepers. Working together, with a focus on material culture, we will uncover and revise understandings of how northern North America shaped and was shaped by connections arising from trade, colonialism and migration and extended its influences into global arenas...... We have two geographic foci: Montreal and Edmonton.....We will develop 18 'Object Lives,' biographies of goods that acted as surrogates of globalization and cross-cultural exchange, to more fully disclose patterns of contact, interaction and representation. The 18 'Object Lives' will be showcased on our dynamic project website and in published scholarly forms.
