Emotional objects: from lost amulets to found photos
November 20, 2:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
A lost necklace received as a gift from a loved one, a stash of photographs found in a dusty attic… What objects are you emotionally attached to, and what feelings do they conjure up? Queen Mary’s Centre for the History of the Emotions (organisers of 2016’s Museum of the Normal) return in 2017 with this drop-in event at the Royal College of Nursing, where visitors will enter a pop-up world of activities, talks and performances investigating what we feel about objects. Map your emotional London, bring and photograph your emotional talismans for our display and explore your emotions and how they are shaped by objects and archives through a series of drop-in activities (see our website for a full list). Attend short talks (evening only) covering everything from fetishes to the hidden objects found in houses.
This event will run in two sessions: from 2-5pm and from 6-9pm.
