Join us for a gallery talk and guided exhibit tour with Instructors Sigrid Cordell, Juli McLoone, and Angie Oehril. The tour for those 50 and over will delve into the history and influence of Daniel Defoe’s "The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe", first published in 1719. In the 300 years since its publication, Defoe’s narrative of shipwreck and survival has captured readers’ imaginations, inspiring a multitude of adaptations and spin-offs, and becoming a cultural touchstone. Featuring material from the University of Michigan Library Special Collections Research Center’s Hubbard Imaginary Voyages Collection, the exhibit explores questions about self-sufficiency, otherness, and the role of gendered and racialized ideas in constructing the self.
