ReTheory Session #7

Date: May 12, 2023, 16:00 c.t.

Location: Seminarraum 1, Haus der Archäologien, am Bergbaumuseum 31, 44791 Bochum

In the summer of 2023, we will dedicate the first two ReTheory sessions to prepare for the ReForm conference ‘Resource – Event – Practice‘ (22.06.–24.06.23) at the FernUniversität in Hagen, especially for the ‘Hands-on-Session’ with Ian Hodder (22.06.23). We will delve into Ian Hodder’s entanglement concept during two discussion sessions on May 12 and June 12.

For the first time, we will meet from 16:00 to 18:00 on Friday, May 12. All persons, who are interested in the conference, the introductory event, or Hodder’s theoretical reflections, are invited to discuss selected parts of Hodder’s book, ‘Entangled’, during the seventh ReTheory session. The meeting will take place in seminar room 1 of the Haus der Archäologien in Bochum.

The readings for the first session are the following texts:


Ian Hodder. 2014. The Entanglements of Humans and Things: A Long-term View. New Literary History 45(1): 19–36. Download

Ian Hodder. 2012. Entangled: An Archaeology of Relationships between Humans and Things, pp. 15–63. Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell

If you do not have access to the article or the book, please let us know via email , and we will provide you with a download link.

We will arrange a hybrid setup if you want to join virtually.

Until then, good reading!
