Murphy Lecture Series DESCRIPTION:Anna Atkins’s cyanotypes, or blueprint photography, featuring algae and ferns do not disclose much about the social and political upheavals of the mid-19th century. In this talk, Siobahn Angus (Carleton University) shows how the materiality of Atkins’s work reflects industrial growth, linking cotton, paper mills, the railway, and plantation slavery.
