Hungerford Bridge by Whistler

James McNeill Whistler, Old Hungerford Bridge, 1861, etching, The Hunterian

Complementing Dr. Patricia de Montfort's Whistler, Art and Legacy exhibition at The Hunterian, University of Glasgow, this interdisciplinary symposium will explore the relationship between nature and industry in the art of James McNeill Whistler, and its connections with wider scientific debates of the period 1850-1914. The Plenary will be given by David Howes, Professor of Anthropology at Concordia University, Montreal, Director of the Concordia Sensoria Research Team (CONSERT), and author of landmark studies on the history, theory and culture of the senses, and there will be five formal academic sessions spread over a day and a half.
