Actual dates: 28 Sep - 20 Nov 2020.
This unit uses the material world, in the form of objects, images and places, to engage with remembering, researching and communicating family history and memories. By looking at homes, human-shaped environments such as gardens, and inherited items both mundane and valuable, you will explore how objects, images and spaces can carry stories, provide an immediate way to relate to your family's past, and interrogate the changing meaning of family over time. You will develop skills in interpreting, contextualising, and documenting your own objects, images and places, which you will then carry into responding to, caring for and sharing your history.
