Jonathan Lawrence and Christy Callaway-Gale, two participants in the TORCH-Ashmolean Talking Sense project, introduce the workshop days.
The workshop days are a combination of handling sessions in the Ashmolean museum and discussions of recent scholarship on the senses. For this episode, Jonathan and Christy re-create the feel of one of the workshop days. They review some of the recent scholarship on the senses discussed during these workshop days, before interviewing Dr. Jim Harris who is in charge of the Talking Sense handling sessions in the Ashmolean museum.
