Uncovering the Animals: Skin, Fur, Feather, 1450-1700
Registration now open
King's College London
29 June 2018
Join us at this half-day workshop that will reflect on the multiple ways in which animal skin, fur, feathers, hair, scales and shells were conceptualised and used between 1450 and 1700. Combining different historiographical approaches and sources (textual, material, and visual), the workshop aims to open the field up to a wider audience, strengthen the need to consider animals compared to similar work on human skin and hair, and facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation, from natural history to material culture, on animal skin in a globalised world.
Speakers: Natalie Lawrence; Tom Rusbridge; Maria Cristina Bastante; Stefan Hanß; Lianming Wang; Patricia Lurati; Sara Ayres
