9e. The Enlightenment

Visit the Enlightenment Gallery a the British Museum.  Discuss the ways in which the organisation of the Gallery reveals the views of its curators.  Your discussion of the role of the curator may refer to Peta Motture’s workshop and/or her article “Inspire, Engage.” Compare BM presentation of the Enlightenment to Immanuel Kant’s in “What is Enlightenment?”
