Location: UCI University Club -- Directions
Time: 3:00 - 4:30 p.m.

 

Lyle Massey, Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Studies, will explore how and why the shift from the normative to the particular in medical illustrations in the 18th century indicated a matching of the eye to a knife, hence illuminating aspects of the relationship between picturing and vision in early modern medicine.

The Works-in-Progress quarterly presentations by UCI faculty provide genuine opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to engage in conversations about health, healing, and well-being from multiple perspectives. In addition to supporting existing research and spurring new scholarly projects, the series seeks to build bridges between faculty in the arts, humanities, and medicine.
