As the research centre’s new contribution to postgraduate curricula, TrAIN will be running a transnational MA seminar entitled ‘Monuments, Museums and Myths: the colonial legacy and the modern nation’.

Coordinated by Michael Asbury, the seminar programme brings together staff and students from Chelsea’s MA Fine Arts, colleagues and students from the Museum of Contemporary Art at the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil, and a number of TrAIN members, associate members and research fellows.

The collaboration stems from a long-lasting relationship between TrAIN and Brazilian academic institutions. It is one in a number of new projects, emerging during the Covid-19 pandemic, that despite the circumstances, promise to be fruitful and enriching to all involved. Presentations from staff at Chelsea, TrAIN and USP will subsequently be archived and made available for reference in the near future.
