Julie Park (Professor of English, Pennsylvania State University) presents "The Camera Obscura & Spaces of Inner Life in 18th-Century England" to the EMSI Long 18th Century seminar. In this talk, Professor Park introduces My Dark Room (University of Chicago Press), her recently published book about the camera obscura as a paradigmatic space of interiority in the material culture and built environments of eighteenth-century England.


Professor Park is a scholar of eighteenth-century British Literature who focuses on interdisciplinary and intermedial research in material and visual culture, architectural and landscape design history, textual materiality, book history, manuscript and print studies, and the history of subjectivity.
