We are seeking contributions from researchers at the University of Oxford for the Ashmolean's DEADFriday LiveFriday on Friday 30 October.
LiveFridays are the Ashmolean's late night public engagement events, involving a programme of live music, performances, workshops, and talks designed to bring the collections to life in innovative ways for up to 6,000 visitors at once. For Halloween weekend, the theme will be DEADFriday, and TORCH will be collaborating with the Ashmolean on a bite-size lecture series exploring the theme of death. We are looking for engaging topics for 30 minute long lectures, with an innovative take on the topic and an interest in using an object from the collections at some point in the talk.
Please contact Victoria McGuinness (firstname.lastname@example.org) with 50 - 100 words about your idea.
