Virtual Trail: Victorian Calcutta Walk

Victorian Calcutta is a period of contrasts. On the one hand, immense advances were made in science and medicine, on the other, the society became more purist and segmented among class and caste lines.

About the Event

In colonial Calcutta, the Victorian period - long known for scientific progress and a strict moral code - overlaps with the flourishing of education and literature commonly called the Bengal Renaissance. This walk explores Calcutta's unique Victorian social milieu created through the peculiar mixing of Victorian values, scientific and medical experimentation, and early Nationalist thought.

Come with us to explore a maze of alleyways in the Bowbazar area of Calcutta, where we will discover places associated with artistic innovations, scientific advocacy, argumentative newspapers, true crime writing, and early Nationalist organization.

The walk will be conducted via Zoom. Please check your Spam folder in case you have not received the link or get in touch with us at for any queries.
