The Eighteenth-Century Studies Group is among the sponsors of two presentations on Thursday, January 19th by Professor Annette Burfoot (Sociology, Queen's). A seminar at 2pm in ARTS 208, "Pilfering in Technoscience", concerns the challenges involved in research in the emerging interdisciplinary fields involved in the visual culture of science. The second, at 7 pm in the Faculty Club is "Terrific Material: Early Modern Medical Imaging and the Materialization of the Feminine", a lecture based on excruciatingly realistic 18th century wax anotomical models that resonate with current medical imaging initiatives such as the Visible Human Project. A reception will follow. Everyone welcome.
