Event description

Opened in 1848, Kew’s Palm House staged a tropical landscape just outside London. Reconstructing a visit to the Victorian Palm House, Kate Teltscher (University of Roehampton) will explore the nineteenth-century commercial and cultural obsession with palms, in conversation with Luciana Martins (Birkbeck).
