Wednesday 8 February 2017, 1.00PM
Professor Ludmilla Jordanova from Durham University will lead this free event exploring the usefulness of "visual culture" in understanding medicine.
"Visual culture" implies the full range of media, and could include x-rays, anatomical illustrations, laboratory notebooks, diagrams in textbooks, photographs of disability, depictions of patients, 'outsider' art and so on. One of the goals of this session will be to explore how visual materials can be used rigorously. The session will begin with a short talk and include time for questions and discussion.
This event has been organised by the Centre for Global Health Histories and is supported by C2D2 funding.
