The Itinerant Image: Printmaking between Art and Science in Enlightenment Britain

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a conference


Over two days, this symposium brought together scholars and curators of British art, science, and print culture from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, to interrogate the creation, use, and function of prints in the production of new scientific knowledge. It considered how the ‘epistemic’ value of an image changed as it was reprinted, adapted, and modified; and paid particular attention to how and when a reproduced image might gain or lose scientific authority.
