Description

Lecture: Helen Cowie’s research project explores the collection, study and exhibition of exotic animals (c.1750-1880), how contemporaries conceptualised rare animals, where they encountered them and what symbolic, pedagogic and scientific value they attached to specimens in zoological gardens and touring menageries.

Part of Birkbeck's Arts Week 2012.
