Material Culture: What does it Include? With Michael Prokopow
Material culture is both a subject area and a methodology. This talk will consider the study of human-made and human-modified things and the ways that they are classified and why. Issues of function, decoration and style will be considered.
Dr. Michael J Prokopow is a cultural historian who writes about material life (including art, architecture, design and craft). He has published widely and is currently working on a project about middle class taste in North American after 1940. Most recently, he completed a book on the British painter Hurvin Anderson. He is a faculty member at OCAD University.
