In association with this year’s “Go Big Read” book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, the History of Science / Medical History and Bioethics Colloquium Series will examine diverse perspectives on the nature and implications of appropriations in science.
The series, APPROPRIATIONS: COLLECTING FOR SCIENCE, will open September 28 with a colloquium led by Ruth Richardson (University of Hong Kong, University of Cambridge), “Human Bodies and Their Parts: Appropriations and Donations from Bodysnatching to Transplants.”
Because of President Obama’s visit to campus Tuesday, Ruth Richardson’s colloquium has been rescheduled and relocated to 12:30-2:00 PM in 204 Bradley Memorial (light refreshments available afterwards).
For more information on the series and a full listing of the colloquia, visit the “Events” section of the History of Science: History of Science, Medicine and Technology Web site.
