As part of Rare Book Week, join exhibition curator Jen Hill for a walk through the exhibition Dark Imaginings at the Noel Shaw Gallery. Dark Imaginings: Gothic Tales of Wonder, explores the expression of the Gothic from the mid-18th century to the end of the 19th century, as represented in the University’s Special Collections. It marks a number of important gothic anniversaries, including the bicentenary of the first publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the 200th birthday of Emily Brontë, author of Wuthering Heights.
