Being human/ being animal
19 November, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Using the specimens and objects from the collections of the Hunterian Museum, this event will highlight what animals have taught us about ‘being human’ in the histories of health and medicine. The event will explore the roles of animals in modern biomedical and biological research, the methods used to study them, and the broader social contexts of this work. Historians from King’s College London and the Royal College of Surgeons will be located around the museum to talk about their research, using animal specimens and displays to cover a variety of topics, from parasites to tuberculosis and cancer, to Ming the celebrity panda.
