Life on the Moon
30 August—13 December 2013
From Lucian's True History up to H.G. Wells' The First Men in the Moon, this exhibition will trace the scientific and literary background of speculation about life on the moon. We will kick things off with an IPRH sponsored lecture by Wells' scholar Dr. Simon J. James from Durham University on The First Men in the Moon on Friday, August 30 at 3 p.m. Several other events will be hosted in Champaign-Urbana during the exhibition to bring the focus of our scope on our inspiring, constant companion.
