September 16th, 2020  |  Published in Latest news

Director Massimo Mazzotti recently participated in a virtual panel for the 9th European Society for the History of Science (ESHS) Conference. The theme of the 2020 meeting is “Visual, Material and Sensory Cultures of Science”, a very broad and inclusive topic. Sessions and talks addressed the history of the sensory approaches to scientific objects, their material culture, as well as the building of scientific practices based on the use of the senses (vision, hearing, touch and smell), with particular attention to the history of the relationship between the visual arts and the sciences across nations, periods, and historiographies; visual epistemologies and the cultural practice of thinking scientifically with images; and the relationship between different media (print, photography, digital imaging, etc.) and scientific disciplines in various social, political, and economic contexts. The panel is titled The Digital Life of Objects and Images: Challenges and Perspectives for the History of Science and can be viewed here.
