In(ter)ventions Keynote and Twitter

Felicity and I are looking forward to welcoming everyone to In(ter)ventions at the British Museum tomorrow. There are just a couple of things left to announce ahead of this. Firstly, Arthur MacGregor (author of Curiosity and Enlightenment: Collectors and Collections from the Sixteenth to the Nineteenth Century (2007); Sir Hans Sloane: Founding Father of the British Museum (1994); and editor of the Journal of the History of Collections) will be giving a keynote entitled ‘New Meanings from New Contexts: Afterlife and Reinterpretation in the Museum Collection’. He will be discussing how objects acquire new layers of meaning as they move from collection to collection.

Secondly, the event hashtag for twitter will be #objectinterventions. Please join @naomilebens in tweeting your thoughts about the themes and papers of the day!
