On Saturday April 20, 2013, the Hagley Museum and Library will host, “Ways of Knowing the World: History and the Senses,” a conference sponsored by the Hagley Fellows of the University of Delaware.

The conference will bring together a diverse group of scholars and the public to explore the historical and cultural role of sensory perception in the human experience—including those that look beyond the Aristotelian conception of the five senses.

Mark Smith, Carolina Distinguished Professor of History, University of South Carolina, will deliver the keynote address. He will discuss his new work on sensory history and the American Civil War.

The conference is free and open to the public. Attendees may also purchase lunch ($11).
