Global Derbyshire in 10 Objects
November 12 - November 22
This is an online event.
How did Derbyshire play a role in the rise of Indian nationalism in the early 20th century? Did you know that the people of Derby paid for some of the scientific instruments that accompanied Captain Scott on his doomed voyage to the South Pole? What can a cotton reel tell us about Derbyshire’s relationship to slavery? How are artists and makers continuing to develop the collections held in Derbyshire? This series of ten mini podcasts looks at how objects in the collections of Derby Museums, Derby Local Studies and Family History Library and Derbyshire Record Office can be the start of larger stories and honest conversations about our past, present and future. Through themes of exploration, exploitation and Empire, discover how these collections connect the local to the global, and how they continue to shape our city and county.
Ten minute podcasts will launch during the festival and will be available to download from the University of Derby’s webpage.
This event is part of the hub series organised by the University of Derby
