Airships and electric submarines, automatons and mesmerists―welcome to the wild world of steampunk. It is all speculative―or is it? Meet the intrepid souls who pushed Victorian technology to its limits and paved the way for our current age as Brandy Schillace presents “Clockwork Futures: A social history of technology and steampunk in an age of manufactured power.”
The Dittrick Museum of Medical History will host a book launch event in honor of Schillace’s book, Clockwork Futures: How Steampunk Science (Re)invented the Modern World, Friday, Sept. 22, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Allen Memorial Medical Library.
Schillace is the senior research associate and public engagement fellow at the Dittrick Medical History Center.
A launch party will be held at Happy Dog from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. after the event.
