Looking Forward: Duke History Revisited 2017

Rubenstein Library Events - Wed, 10/11/2017 - 21:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)West Campus

This summer, our second class of Duke History Revisited students dug into the University's history, developing individual research projects that tell the stories of people and events that are not widely known using materials at the Duke University Archives.

On October 11th, five of the program's students will come together to recap their projects. During this public event, each student will briefly introduce their topic, highlight their research discoveries, and offer their own insight into Duke's history. The presentations will be followed by refreshments and an opportunity to talk with the students in more detail.

The students' research projects are also available on the University Archives' Duke History Revisited website.

Duke History Revisited was funded by Humanities Writ Large, the Dean of Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, and the Duke University Archives.

Oct. 25th: Race, Medicine, Authorship and the “Discovery” of Sickle Cell Disease in 1910-1911

Baskin Test - Tue, 10/10/2017 - 16:29

Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
Time: 5:00 PM
Location: Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room, 153 Rubenstein Library
Contact: Rachel Ingold, rachel.ingold@duke.edu, (919) 684-8549

Please join the History of Medicine Collections for our next Trent History of Medicine Lecture Series event. Todd Savitt, Ph.D. will present Race, Medicine, Authorship and the ‘Discovery’ of Sickle Cell Disease in 1910-1911.

The first two case histories of sickle cell disease (SCD) appeared in the medical literature within three months of each other in 1910 and 1911.  The very divergent stories of the first two sickle-cell patients and their physicians are told against the backdrop of a racially divided America and of a highly competitive scientific community. Dr. Savitt’s talk will discuss how race and class affected the discovery of SCD and how credit for the two discoveries were apportioned. Dr. Savitt will also talk about his own “adventures” in tracking down the identities and backgrounds of these first two SCD patients.

Dr. Savitt is a medical historian and professor in the Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.

All are welcome to attend.
