September 18, 2014 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

This talk is based on Jeremy Greene’s just published book, Generic: The Unbranding of Modern Medicine, the first book to chronicle the social, political, and cultural history of generic drugs in America, narrating the evolution of the generic drug industry from a set of mid-twentieth-century "schlock houses" and "counterfeiters" into an agile and surprisingly powerful set of multinational corporations in the early twenty-first century.

October 2, 2014 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

This lecture explores the widespread sense that American medicine was suffering from an “image crisis” in the decades from 1945 to 1965. Focusing on commentaries about the demise of “good old doc,” speaker Nancy Tomes looks at how that perception reflected broader postwar debates over political authority, personal service, and the status anxieties of the middle class male.

October 18, 2014 • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Anatomical investigation during the Renaissance was driven by artists and anatomists passionate about unlocking the mysteries of the human body. The inner workings of the human form were vividly described and represented in anatomical illustrations of startling power. Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks were among the most magnificent, merging scientific investigation and beautifully observed drawing.

October 18, 2014 • 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM

The hand as an expression of the mind and personality is second only to the face in the tradition of dissection and illustration that flourished in the Renaissance and continues to inform both art and science. This workshop will offer the opportunity to explore the human hand and its anatomy, which will be demonstrated with at least three dissections. 

October 18, 2014 • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
