EDIT: This talk is now happening on Wednesday, 26th September 2018, 2:30-3:30pm!
I’m very excited to be giving a talk on ‘Automata in Literature and Culture’, fathoming the literary and psychological depths of our fascination with automata through history at The Marvellous Mechanical Museum exhibition, for which I acted as a consultant, at Compton Verney – Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown‘s former abode. With Greek Mythology, Frankenstein, Rowland Emmet (and possibly even LEGO), there’s definitely going to be something for everybody! Tickets include entry to the exhibition (which you must see!).
PS: Don’t miss out on the gorgeous book accompanying the exhibition for which I wrote an essay!

Excited to have received my contributor's copy of The Marvellous Mechanical Museum, accompanying the automata exhibition at @compton_verney for which I acted as consultant – this is the most beautiful thing I have ever been published in, with beautiful illustrations by @stuart_patience and alongside Simon Schaffer no less! Also come & hear my talk on on Wed 5th September at the exhibition! #automata #histtech #hitsci #literature #science #scienceevents #scicomm #frankenstein #frankenstein200 #etahoffmann #sandman
