Inspired by the APS Museum’s upcoming exhibition Sketching Splendor: Natural History in America, 1750-1850 the American Philosophical Society is organizing a two-day conference that will explore the ways humans have imagined, depicted, and constructed representations and knowledge about the natural world over time.

The conference will be held in-person at the Society in Philadelphia on June 6-7, 2024.

The conference is free and open to all, but registration is required to attend. A full schedule will be provided soon.
