Exploring the affective presence
and emotive materiality of human bones
The Bones Collective is an international and interdisciplinary research network of anthropologists, archaeologists, artists based at the University of Edinburgh who share an interest in human bones. We have hosted various events including a seminar series, workshop and conference panel, and numerous less formal conversations through which we have explored the affective presence and emotive materiality of human bones. We are keen to forge creative and constructive links with scholars elsewhere who share these interests and are working on related themes.
