Emotional Objects: From Lost Amulets to Found Photos

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 late 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. Expect puppetry workshops, emotional talismans and displays of healing objects.
