(Mis)locating Atlantis – uploaded

December 2, 2013
Poster showing two possible locations of Atlantis

My poster for Malcolm’s talk.

Malcolm Heath talked about the many places in which Plato’s mythical community of Atlantis has been located and explored the reasons underpinning those decisions and what they revealed about the intellectual landscape of their originators. The talk provided a fascinating insight into the history of ideas and the relevance of apparent “crack pots” for understanding wider ideological contexts and their historical implications.

This talk expanded on the material used for Light Night 2013, taking it beyond the Victorian period.
