Eyetopia Symposium Fri November 5

Victorian Dreams of Place & Vision


Friday November 5; 1pm-6pm
Anatomy Theatre, Strand Campus, King’s College London [location]

How and what did the Victorians see? From blinking, to staring, observing, voyeurism, to conjuring spectral visions of the dead, the Victorian imaginaire derived much of its power from the aqueous life of the eyeball. But to what worlds, both real and imagined, did these manifold forms of visualisation take them?

The subjects discussed will be Darwin and observation, photography and poetry, Victorian mourning photography and the Victorian microscope and the aesthetics of wonder.-

Speakers

Professor David Amigoni (Keele), Professor Isobel Armstrong (Birkbeck), Audrey Linkman (Independent) and Alison Wood (KCL)

Refreshments will be provided and there will be a wine reception afterwards. All welcome and entrance is free.
