Change the Subject

The documentary Change the Subject explores the ways that politics can enter a library catalog, and shows what libraries can do about it. The film’s runtime is one hour, but we trust that it will be thought provoking, and so have allowed time afterward for discussion. We'll have coffee and desserts, but feel free to bring your lunch. From the film’s producers:

Special Collections After Hours: Dissecting the Human Body in the Renaissance

Copper-plate engraving of a "muscle man" from Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564). De humani corporis fabrica libri septem (Basel: Johannes Oporinus, 1543).

The visual representation of human anatomy in the Renaissance was the fruit of an extraordinary partnership between physicians and artists. You are all invited to explore a great variety of early printed books containing illustrations of the human body that reflect the science of dissection as well as the latest artistic theories. The display will include richly illustrated treatises by well-known authors such as Leonardo da Vinci and Andreas Vesalius.
