Book description

Victorian culture was characterized by a proliferation of shows and exhibitions. These were encouraged by the development of new sciences and technologies, together with changes in transportation, education and leisure patterns. The essays in this collection look at exhibitions and their influence in terms of location, technology and ideology.

Reviews

"‘This fascinating collection of essays breaks new ground in its representation of the central place of exhibitions in Victorian culture. The book takes us on a grand tour of Victorian display leaving the reader in no doubt that science, for the Victorians, was built around spectacle. This insightful overview is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how and why science became part of nineteenth-century culture.’"
