Trent History of Medicine Lecture Series: Cali Buckley on the History and Legacy of Ivory Anatomical Manikins

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2016-10-25 20:00
Rubenstein 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

Cali BuckleyIvory anatomical models comprise a little-known set of objects that were popular with male doctors of the late 17th and 18th centuries. Their narrative is currently being revised in light of a history of questionable assumptions. Though small and largely inaccurate, the story of anatomical manikins reveals how the politics of medicine impresses meaning on medical objects—often transcending the needs of the scientific community. Cali Buckley will present on her current hypotheses as well as the process by which medical objects can be examined according to social history, connoisseurship, and material culture.     

Cali Buckley is a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Penn State University. She received a Fulbright U.S. Student Award that allowed her to spend the 2015–16 academic year in Germany working on her dissertation, “Early Modern Anatomical Models and the Control of Women’s Medicine.” 

Free and open to the public.
