HKW Talk on the Anthropocene | Matt Edgeworth

Thu, Oct 16, 2014 with Matt Edgeworth and Bernd Scherer

What if dusty archaeology were suddenly forced to deal with the living present? The Anthropocene brings deposits into view left behind during the lifetimes of the researchers. How does this change the research, its methods and the perception of the researchers? A conversation between the archaeologist Matt Edgeworth and Bernd M. Scherer. From the series HKW Talk on the Anthropocene.

Matt Edgeworth is an archaeologist and cultural anthropologist at the School of Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Leicester. Bernd M. Scherer is director of Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
