Center for Material Culture Studies
The Center for Material Culture Studies (CMCS) builds on the University's distinguished international reputation in the interdisciplinary study of material and visual culture. Through the Center, students and teachers examine material objects as living artifacts, as texts and contexts, to better imagine, interpret, and appreciate the world we inhabit; experience material and visual culture in a dynamic learning, teaching, research, and public service environment; participate in seminars, field-based research ventures with institutional partners and state, regional, and national organizations; and contribute to the national effort in documentation, interpretation, preservation, and teaching of material and visual culture.
