Curious Collections and Exhibitions Lecture, EAMHMS Conference, Copenhagen

I really can't watch myself on video, but if you are curious to see what I had to say at last month's Copenhagen-based EAMHMS conference on the topic how medical museums might use wunderkammer-inspired techniques of curiosity and wonder as a strategy to draw people into engaging with scientific and historical objects, you can watch the above video.

To read a nice synopsis and analysis of my brief talk and the following spirited discussion on the blog Biomedicine on Display--the work of the hosting institution, Medical Museion--click here. To read the full abstract for the talk, click here.

Thanks, Thomas, for putting this video/writeup together, and for hosting such an engaging and thought-provoking conference!
