Local Interest

A full range of subsistence and activities will be arranged for the conference. However, if you are extending your visit to the city, we can recommend the following (see also the attractions listed on Visit Oxford):

Exhibition and Lecture

An exhibition and associated lecture on Martin Lister’s conchological copperplates – a fascinating case study in seventeenth-century practices of scientific illustration – might be of interest to conference speakers and delegates who are in Oxford on Wednesday, 19 September. The talk is by exhibition curator and Cultures of Knowledge Research Fellow Anna Marie Roos, who rediscovered the copperplates among the Bodleian’s holdings in 2010. Find out more!
