December 3, 2015 - December 4, 2015
Deutsches Museum Munich, Germany + Google Map

The Anthropocene is an idea now challenging and inspiring museums of many different kinds and in many parts of the world. This invitational workshop focused on how museum scholars, curators and other practitioners have responded to this concept with new experiments in collecting, exhibiting and programming. It explored what the community of museums engaged with contemporary cultural and environmental issues has learned to date about working with and in the Anthropocene, and asked how these experiences might inform future projects.…

Communicating the Climate – Workshop

August 16, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm UTC+0

This short workshop engages with the questions surrounding climate science communication, from a social
science and humanities’ perspective. The aim is to learn from each other how to communicate climate social science, and climate humanities, findings most effectively, and how to make this important work salient in the
wider world. A corollary aim is the exchange of expertise between graduate students in different disciplines, and
encouraging an honest reflection on their own preconceptions and aims (and each other’s).

2017 ICOM NATHIST Conference: The Anthropocene, Natural History Museums in the Age of Humanity

October 25, 2017 @ 7:00 am - October 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm UTC+0
Carnegie Museum of Natural History, 4400 Forbes Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15213 United States
+ Google Map

The Anthropocene is the concept that human activity has had a profound and pervasive impact on the planet, such that its effects will be present in the fossil record millions of years from now. This warrants a dedicated geological era, the Anthropocene. The concept of humanity’s impact on and interaction with the global environment touches on science, conservation, artistic expression, philosophy, and even recreation. Natural history museums are at the nexus of these considerations, researching arcane ecological and evolutionary concepts, interpreting them for the public.

Several exciting programs and museum events will run in tandem with the 2017 conference. Attendees will receive tickets to the museum’s famous Halloween party and be among the first to see Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s new exhibition—We Are Nature. The exhibition will feature pieces of the museum’s hidden collection in its exploration of the Anthropocene.

Remaking the Museum: Curation, Conservation, and Care in Times of Ecological Upheaval

December 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am - December 7, 2017 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
Moesgaard Museum, Moesgård Allé 15
Højbjerg, 8270 Denmark
+ Google Map

In this time of entangled social and environmental crisis, the need to not only reimagine but remake the museum has acquired new urgency. In response, this two-day conference will bring together leading scholars and practitioners to investigate the opportunities, challenges, and limits of the museum as a catalyst for social change in this geological epoch of our making: the Anthropocene.
From the museum’s early modern origins to the development of today’s highly heritage saturated public culture, the capacity of museums and their objects to perform particular relationships between nature, culture,
and history has always been important—inviting critique from a variety of political and theoretical vantage points. The emergence of the Anthropocene as both a contested concept and concrete reality adds new layers of complexity and intensity to this story.
