Scenes from the M.A. Cultural Geography programme

Students "curate" the Queen's Building

In a session today devoted to object biographies, commodities, and agencies, the M.A. Cultural Geography (Research) group turned curators and offered an alternative narration of the Queen’s Building—home to the Department of Geography. Each student chose a site or object in the building which had a particular meaning or significance to them, and described its features and characteristics through an interpretative label. The Queen’s Building thus became, albeit temporarily, the Museum of Cultural Geography—encompassing everything from sociability and the geographies of time to corporeal waste.
