Ways of Making and Knowinge is to be held at several participating institutions in London from 11-15 July 2005, and sponsored by the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, the Wellcome Trust, and the Yale Center for British Art. This conference aims to build on exciting new work in the history of material culture to break down the common historiographical dichotomies between craft skill and scientific knowledge, and to showcase some of the most suggestive studies demonstrating that natural knowledge flowed from an engagement with natural things. The chronological orientation of the lectures and discussions will range from the Renaissance through the nineteenth century. Historians of science and medicine, art historians, and museum scholars from various fields will learn from one another through a programme that mixes lectures with hands-on demonstrations. The conference will be held on several sites where expert curators and representative objects are available, namely Chelsea Physic Garden, the British Museum, the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, the Natural History Museum, London, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Painshill Park. The conference is open to the public. További információ:
