Join Uncomfortable Oxford for an interactive virtual tour of the Pitt Rivers Museum, focusing on different modes of (dis)collecting, display, and critical analysis of the museum space.

 

Uncomfortable Oxford is an academic-led social enterprise in the city of Oxford, which runs lectures, digital events, and creates resources highlighting stories of inequality, imperialism, race, class, and gender discrimination, as well as the debates surrounding historical memory. Founded in 2018, the organisation's goal is to raise awareness and generate uncomfortable yet meaningful discussions about these issues in the public sphere, using in particular the built environment to bring up contested histories and their present legacies. 

 

Speakers names:  Paula Larsson, Olivia Durand, and Waqas Mirza
