The World in a Box: Cabinets of Curiosity

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 18:30 to 19:30

Professor Nandini Das, Professor of Early Modern Literature and Culture at University of Oxford, tells the story of the age when Britain first learnt how to collect, and of how that obsession with discovering secrets and collecting curiosities transformed the way we see the world and our place within it. It begins, as good stories often do, with the opening of a box - a Cabinet of Curiosities.
