Public Lecture by Dr Marieke Hendriksen
This public lecture will discuss the transmission of practical knowledge and skills between artists and anatomists in the period of 1750-1850.
Dr Marieke Hendriksen is a Senior Researcher on the ERC Artechne project and Co-Principal Investigator for the project Art DATIS at Utrecht University. Dr Hendriksen’s work gravitates towards the intersection of art, science, and material culture, specifically the history of scientific and anatomical collections during the long 18th century, exploring issues like the complex interaction between experimentation and theory and the fluidity of epistemic domains and professional roles.
