"Lessons in Anatomy Made Easy: Anatomical Models in Scientific and Cultural Context," Conference, 2008


The Museum Boerhaave in Leiden, The Netherlands, is hosting an international conference on anatomical models in historical and cultural context. The conference will be held on November 6th and 7th, and abstracts (if you're interested in presenting a paper) need to be submitted by August 1. The website is interested in submissions from historians of science, art historians and conservators with an interest in anatomical models, whether made from wax, plaster, papier-mâché or glass.

That should be a very interesting conference. A wide preview of anatomical models to come.
