Twenty Years, Twenty Questions to Ask an Object

To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, the Material Culture Caucus of the American Studies Association decided to play a version of the classic game “Twenty Questions” during a workshop at the 2014 ASA Annual Meeting in Los Angeles. Deborah Andrews, Sarah Anne Carter, Estella Chung, Ellen Gruber Garvey and Catherine Whalen challenged workshop participants to play “Twenty Questions to Ask an Object” about some of their favorite things, modeling exercises that could be used in the classroom or with museum visitors. Videographer Mark Escribano documented the event. To learn more about the workshop visit The Material Studies Association.
