"The Anatomist and the Book in the Early Sixteenth Century."

R. Allen Shotwell, Indiana University

The role of the book in the study of anatomy is an interesting one.  This presentation suggests that there are things to be learned by looking at the history of anatomy as a topic in the larger history of the book, but these lessons may not be as simple nor as pervasive as some might think. 

The next HMD "Summer of Seminars" program will be held on Thursday, August 13, 2-3:30pm in the NLM Visitor Center, Bldg 38A.  Julia F. Irwin (Yale University) will speak on "Poster Children and the Construction of American International Identity."  The final program in the series will be held Thursday, August 27, 2-3:30pm, also in the NLM Visitor Center, Bldg 38A.  Miriam Posner (Yale University) will speak on "Conventions of Display: Cultures of Exhibition in Twentieth-Century Medicine."
