Scientists, Midwives and Healers in the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2016-02-09 21:00
Tue, Feb 09, 2016
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Rubenstein Library Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room 153
Duke History Department Professor Tom Robisheaux will give a lecture on the on the Baskin Collection including his use of naturalist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian's works. "Heralding the Way to a New World: Exploring Women in Science and Medicine through the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection" will be on display in the Michael and Karen Stone Family Gallery through April 1, 2016. From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.
