‘Sorted!’, a brand new festival launched by Cambridge University Botanic Garden to celebrate the opening of the Rising Path, brings together artists and art historians, botanic garden experts, scientists, historians, curators, horticulturalists, researchers and writers in order to explore how we sort and organise the natural world.
Each day of the Festival is themed to provoke and shape discussion. The theme for Wednesday 26 September is ‘Sorted! By Sight and Scent’ and includes contributions from Dr Tobin and Dr Read, as follows:
Becoming ‘all eye’: Virginia Woolf’s colour sense, Dr Claudia Tobin, Faculty of English, Cambridge University
Any other name: the poetics of perfume, Dr Sophie Read, Faculty of English, Cambridge University.
