Project Profile:

Object Lives and Global Histories in Northern North America

Website: http://objectlives.com/  

Twitter: @ObjectLives

Description: Object Lives and Global Histories in Northern North America is a collaborative research project with Edmonton and Montreal as the geographic hubs for its enquiry. This project will explore the histories of material culture within these regions, linked to wider global flows of influence that arise from trade, colonialism and migration. The object histories will be developed through our project’s multi-disciplinary partnership, generating essential new knowledge about people and object interactions. The stories of the selected objects will be presented on the ‘Object Lives’ website, detailing the biographies of goods that acted as surrogates of early globalization and cross-cultural exchange.
