Distinguished Fellow Lecture
Anatomy, Cartography, and the New World Body
May 8 (Thursday) 7:30 p.m.
During the so-called “age of discovery,” European cartographers and anatomists developed novel strategies for representing the human body in their atlases of the world and its inhabitants. Valerie Traub, professor of English and women’s studies, University of Michigan, and the Dibner Distinguished Fellow, speculates on the effects of their illustrations on the emergence of the concept of “the normal.” Free. No reservations required.
