CANCELLED: History & Philosophy of Science Talk by Daniela Bleichmar, History of Science in the Art Museum

Abstract: How do we write the history of science in objects and images? How does an art museum today present the story of early modern cultural encounters in science and art? This talk will address the role of images, books, and objects in the production and circulation of knowledge about Latin American nature in the early modern period, as well as the challenges and opportunities that scholars face in presenting their research to broad audiences in a museum context. The discussion will be based on the experience of curating the upcoming international exhibition, Visual Voyages: Images of Latin American Nature from Columbus to Darwin, opening in Fall 2017.
