Aesthetic Enlightenments: Cultures of Natural Knowledge.

Aesthetic Enlightenments: Cultures of Natural Knowledge.

A two day international symposium at the Huntington Library, California

This two-day conference, co-organised with Dr Emily Senior (Birkbeck), will examine the relationship between the aesthetic production and social circulation of knowledge about the natural world in the eighteenth century. It aims to connect literary, visual and discursive forms of analysis with approaches current within social history, in order to interrogate the relationship between social participation in science and the aesthetic and cultural forms of its making.

Our confirmed speakers are:
