CSMBR Webinar Series 2021 – EXPANDING THE LIMITS OF ACADEMIC MEDICINE – 22 April 2021

Expanding the Limits of Academic Medicine

Pedagogy, Magic, Anatomy, & Surgery

Zoom Webinar 22 April 2021, 4-7pm CET (UTC + 1)

This webinar explores the different ways in which medicine developed beyond the traditional boundaries of an academic discipline thereby informing approaches and practices as diverse as pedagogy, magic, the professionalisation of surgeons across the German-speaking countries, as well as early modern visualisations of the body and theories of action at a distance. By drawing on a wide range of sources such as treatises by humanists, travel reports, and close reading of anatomical manuscript notes, speakers will uncover the changing outline of early modern medicine across borders and contexts.
