Matthews Fellowship Lecture with Kate Harris

October 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Lands of Lost Borders: The Meaning of Exploration in a Modern, Mapped World

Between sneaking illegally across Tibet, studying the history of science at Oxford, and staring down a microscope for a doctorate at MIT, Kate Harris realized that she didn’t have to launch to the planet Mars to feel a sense of discovery. Weaving adventure, history, and reflections on her travels, Harris joins us to explore the meaning of “exploration” on our mapped and tamed world in this talk about her bicycle journey on the Silk Road.

We are thrilled to welcome Kate Harris, multiple award-winning author and adventurer, as the 2019 Matthews Fellow. As well as student-focused events at Fellowship partners Lakefield College School and Trent University, Kate Harris will share the story of her multiple-award-winning first book Lands of Lost Borders  at the Museum at 8pm. Doors open at 7:30. Light refreshments will be served. Free or by donation.
