Workshop series “Young Forum for Collection and Object Research”
The workshop series “Young Forum for Collection and Object Research” is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation. The aim of the series is to create a platform for young researchers to network with each other across disciplines and to reflect on questions of object-based research, especially in scientific collections. The central aim is to encourage young scientists to work with objects and object collections, to acquire object competence and to learn to think in terms of interdisciplinary projects.
During the workshop, research questions, methods and results will be presented and discussed with other young researchers and experts. Furthermore, we expect participants to be willing to discuss their work with representatives of other disciplines.
The next workshops will take place in Halle-Wittenberg (Zentralmagazin Naturwissenschaftlicher Sammlungen, 2020).
