Exhibition: The Unfinishing of Things

A new exhibition funded by the European Research Council has opened at the University of Aberdeen and runs until September.

'The Unfinishing of Things' draws on research by the 'Knowing From the Inside' project based in the Department of Anthropology. The exhibition is grouped around three modes of knowing. At the heart of the project are the following 'materials' at the Sir Duncan Rice Library, 'place' in the foyer of the MacRobert Building and 'people' in the James McKay Hall balcony.

Cooking the books 

Cookery books from the University of Aberdeen's Special Collections.

Modern recipe books regularly top the non-fiction bestseller lists and their authors, the "celebrity chefs", are household names. This exhibition showcases a selection of cookery books and food-related pamphlets from the University of Aberdeen's Special Collections. They date, predominantly, from the 1800s, a period during which a fashion and a passion for food was fed by the dramatic increase in book publishing. The names of the cooks may not be familiar, but their books sold like hot cakes.
