Artefacts as Actors at Abydos

Artefacts as Actors at Abydos

This seminar explores the contribution of the UCL eugenicists Francis Galton, Flinders Petrie, and Karl Pearson to social networks involved in anthropometric experiments in Egypt. Drawing on Actor Network Theory, this seminar demonstrates the potential of achieving new insights and understandings by means of object biographies. Artefacts, letters and photographs become major actors.
