Join Mary Pedley, Clements Adjunct Map Curator, as she discusses the current exhibit, Mapping in the Enlightenment. After the lecture there will be time to view the exhibit at the Clements. Guests will have an opportunity to see one of only seven known copies of Cassini's Planisphere Terrestre (circular world map).

This exhibit aims to show the connections between the Enlightenment's search for answers to scientific questions, innovative mapping practices, and the interest and participation of the general public in the discussion and debate that these topics and maps elicited.
