RUSSIA OBJECTIFIED

This Unit Assignment asked students to choose from a collection of objects the teaching staff identified as playing some role in the construction of 'Russianness', from either a domestic or global perspective (or both), over time. Having made their selections they went on to create object biographies. The final stage was a group curation exercise that produced the thematic groupings, arrangements, and 'wall texts' you see here. In other words, this Omeka page is the virtual representation of collaborative work that took place in real time and physical space (Gund 522) as part of SW52.
