Botany, Trade and Empire: Exploring Kew’s Miscellaneous Reports Collection

Den här digitala tredagarskonferensen den 2-4 mars låter intressant:

Kew’s Miscellaneous Reports Collection is a major resource relating to colonial and global networks of economic botany and scientific activity between 1850-1928.

The Collection contains 772 volumes of unique archival and rare printed material which provides evidence of the plants and plant products, botanists, commercial interests, and gardeners, moving across an expanding web of botanic gardens and agricultural and forestry stations.

It holds huge potential for both historical and scientific research, including imperial history, the use of plants by indigenous communities, medicine, nutrition and health, the environment, as well as anthropology, ethnography, and agricultural history.

It is also a crucial source of evidence for critically examining and confronting Kew’s own history and colonial role.
