On Wednesday, October 18th, current Post-Doc Kathryn Desplanque will have an exhibit opening at Duke University Libraries. Light refreshments will be served, and both Kathryn and the exhibits coordinator, Meg Brown, will be on hand to chat and discuss.

The exhibit, entitled Humans of Paris: Picturing Social Life in the 19th Century showcases “panoramic writing,” or sketch writing and illustrations of comical urban typologies, from the 1830s and ’40s.┬áKathryn links these to street spectacle in 19th century Paris (and have a magic lantern on display), and to contemporary urban spectacle such as memes (much more tenuously).
