In Conversation with Dani S. Bassett and Perry Zurn on Curious Minds (In-Person)

February 15 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Description

Curiosity, say Perry Zurn and Dani Bassett, is a practice of connection: it connects ideas into networks of knowledge, and it connects knowers themselves, both to the knowledge they seek and to each other. Traipsing across literatures of antiquity and medieval science, Victorian poetry and nature essays, as well as work by writers from a variety of marginalized communities, they trace a multitudinous curiosity. The book performs the very curiosity that it describes, inviting readers to participate—to be curious with the book and not simply about it.
