Join us for a rereading of Carl Linnaeus’s 1732 diary of a trip through Northern Scandinavia

In the summer of 1732, the Swedish medical student Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778) travelled through Northern Scandinavia. His diary of that journey has been celebrated as pioneering modern scientific and ethnographic fieldwork. Dr Staffan Müller-Wille proposes to read it against the grain. The knowledge Linnaeus gathered was generated “in transit” at intersections of diverse communities and affected by frameworks of hospitality and hostility.
