Testimonials TTM3 - 2016

Ruben, University of Groningen, Netherlands

'I really recommend this summer school to students who are interested in material culture. The summer school offered up a wealth of lectures, workshops, city tours, museum visits, and student presentations; it was a rich and diverse programme with something for everyone. It's a real joy to meet other students from many different universities from The Netherlands and abroad. Also, some great experts in the field were included in the programme.'

Rozemarijn, University of Groningen, Netherlands

'This summer school was a great way to learn about material culture and how it can be used in (your) research, and I enjoyed meeting interesting people with similar interests. T he summer school provided students with a new approach to their research, which was of great added value. I enjoyed the combination of interesting lectures and discussions with practical hands-on sessions. This combination provides you with a theoretical framework, but also gives you the opportunity to make this practical by actually working with objects to see how they can be used as historical sources. '

Levent Boz, Hacettepe University, Turkey

'It was a rich programme with inspiring approaches to materiality of objects from boxes to relics, dresses to ‘things’ created by psychiatric patients, along with philosophical discussions. I am so happy to have been part of it.
Now I know where to start when thinking about the material culture studies. Provided reading materials and the presentations inspired and encouraged me to learn more about this subject. Of course, having new friends is another significant benefit.'
