(IM)MATERIAL CULTURE: Health History Collections in a Digital Era, an interdisciplinary symposium
A part of the University of Toronto’s Sesquicentennial Commemorations, (IM)MATERIAL CULTURE: Health History Collections in a Digital Era, an interdisciplinary symposium, will take place on November 10th and 11th, 2017. The event is hosted by the University of Toronto’s Health History Partnership, (IM)MATERIAL CULTURE focuses on broadening perspectives on health as represented through material culture. It explores, in particular, the ways in which collections may be used to recover and present the histories of previously ‘invisible’, or marginalized groups.
The event begins with an evening reception and keynote address on the Symposium’s themes on Friday, November 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This is followed by an inter-professional (IPE) education day on Saturday, November 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Medical Sciences Building, with panels, speakers and exhibits charting the evolution of health history collections in a digital era.
