Workshop: “Going Global”, Whipple Museum, 2010-2-12

From Josh Nall, of the Whipple Museum:

On February 12th the Whipple Museum of the History of Science, Cambridge, will host a half-day workshop entitled Going Global. The workshop will feature talks by historians who have studied globes in the Whipple collection, and by the globe conservator Sylvia Sumira, who will discuss the recent work she has carried out on several globes held by the Museum.

The workshop will be free and open to all. More details can be found on the Whipple’s website:

List members may also be interested to know that the Whipple’s special exhibition of over forty globes from the Whipple Museum’s collection has been extended, and will now run until at least the summer:
