Thursday 27 June 2013, The Geffrye Museum of the Home
The home and domestic life are rich subjects for life-long learning. Home is part of the history curriculum in schools and has become the focus for a growing range of undergraduate courses in subjects such as anthropology, archaeology, architecture, geography, history and literary studies. The home and domestic life are centrally important in the learning and engagement programmes of a wide range of museums, including those specialising in the domestic interior, historic house museums, living history museums and houses associated with notable individuals.
The conference, to be held at the Geffrye Museum of the Home, brings together educators working on home and domestic life in schools, universities and the museum and heritage sectors. Papers are invited that address the opportunities and challenges of teaching and learning about home to different age groups and diverse communities. By bringing together educators from a wide range of contexts and places, the conference aims to address the distinctive issues involved in teaching and learning about home and domestic life in the past and present.
For more information please see the call for papers.
Please submit a 200 word abstract to Jacqueline Winston-Silk by Monday 22 April.
