Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Interdisciplinary Working Group

This year, our group seeks to explore connections between the arts and sciences during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We aim to provide a forum for reading our members’ current scholarship as well as important historical and theoretical studies, and hope to organize public lectures and forums related to our interests.  Members are also interested in engaging with exhibitions, theatrical productions, and other events on campus which might speak to our interests and hope to engage with scholars at other institutions in eastern Iowa.
