Reading Artifacts Workshop Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 — 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM EDT

Graduate Students Workshop

Free to all UW grad students. Learn to "read" objects from UWaterloo's rich computer history and help design an exhibit!

Enjoy a free, delicious lunch catered by the Grad House.

Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot today or ask any questions by contacting computer.museum@uwaterloo.ca before May 20.

Why study material culture? In an era when "everything" seems to be online, why should we spend time looking at objects, picking them up and holding them in our hands? Because objects are a way of understanding the world and every person in it. All we have to do is learn how to ask the right questions.
