Hidden Histories of Things - Mon 26th Jan

Are you interested in the fascinating hidden histories of things as diverse as turpentine, pesticides, seaweed, apples and red squirrels? 

This event, co-organised by the Open University's Commodity Histories Project and the Institute of Making, brings together an international group of researchers who all focus on peoples' relationships with the non-human throughout history. Discussion will focus on methods for interrogating the non-human and will explore what histories of materials, objects, animals and plants can reveal about their contemporary workings and future potentialities. Download the full programme here.
