New Perspectives on Historic Collections: Research by the Temple-Wagner Humanities & Arts Fellows

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 6:00pm

Wagner Free Institute of Science (Philadelphia, PA)

In 2016, the Wagner launched a fellowship program with Temple University to encourage the school’s arts and humanities scholars to conduct research in the Wagner’s library and collection. So far, the program has inspired 8 exciting research projects that frame the Wagner’s collection in creative ways and reveal new historical information. This showcase will include: a reading from a poem inspired by the Wagner’s archives; samples of jewelry based on scientific drawings; a talk on the microscopic photographs of the Langenheim Brothers; and more! Presentations start at 6 in the lecture hall and will be followed by a reception where additional Fellow projects will be on display.
