Objects of Encounter: Local and Global Histories of South Asia at the Museum of Vancouver

This special experiential learning course allows students to gain hands-on research experience with the Museum of Vancouver (MOV). Led jointly by UBC faculty and a senior MOV curators, the course consists of both classroom elements (examining the theory of material culture research and establishing a historical context for these objects) at UBC and time in the museum collections. The aim of the course is to work towards a virtual exhibition of South Asian artefacts held at the MOV. Students will develop historical research skills, learn about museum curating, and engage in public history.
