Arnd and Cicilie introduce the texts.
We are visited by Professor Helge Jordheim from Department of Cultural History and Museology, UiO.
Three readings for today: The introduction to Caitlin deSilvey's book Curated Decay and two additional articles that each in its own way questions themes that are also relevant for de Silvey: interruption, non-intervention, agency of things. One is on plastic and the other on trees, both in Journal of Material Culture.
We read an article by Sasha Newell and affects and the anti-symbolic turn.
We are visited by Kathleen Stewart who will take part in a workshop on writing for the research group members.

We continue our exploration of other-than-writing forms of representation. This time we take a look at drawing.
Most remainders of human effort and occupancy consist not of discernible ruins, memorials and heritage features, but of amorphous, unbounded sediment and seepage: rubble, waste, dust, liquids, gases. In a panel at the ASA conference in Oxford, Wenzel Geissler and Caitlin DeSilvey ask how the latent potentials of such material remains affect future life and effect unanticipated transformations.
