Pop-Up Exhibition: Illuminated and Unsettled
Curated by Harvard graduate students in English, this pop-up exhibition is inspired by “Trans-Reformation English Writing,” a graduate seminar taught by professor James Simpson for many years using objects from Houghton Library. Items include texts by Chaucer, Milton, and Shakespeare. The exhibition is part of "Illuminated and Unsettled: Literary Forms and Cultural Power, Medieval to Early Modern," Harvard English Department's 2022 Morton W. Bloomfield Conference honoring Simpson’s career as a teacher and scholar. The pop-up exhibition case is in the Edison and Newman Room on Houghton's main level.
