The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement


The Hamilton Kerr Institute’s upcoming two-day conference Migrants: art, artists, materials and ideas crossing borders will reflect on the role of migration as embodied in works of art, material culture and their conservation.

The conference will present diverse papers by speakers from a range of disciplines from around the world. Speakers will present on how artists, conservators and their materials, ideas and techniques have crossed borders from antiquity to the modern day. We aim to create a forum for lively and productive discussion of ongoing research interpreting art and material culture from all disciplines and periods.
