Assembling bodies

By October 1, 2009 No Comments

Don’t forget to see ‘Assembling Bodies: Art, Science & Imagination’, the major interdisciplinary exhibition at the University of Cambridge’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, when you are in town (45 mins from Stansted airport).

The exhibition explores some of the different ways that bodies are imagined, understood and transformed in the arts, social and bio-medical sciences. The project is part of the Leverhulme Research Project ‘Changing Beliefs of the Human Body’ (2004-2009), which has brought together researchers in archaeology, ancient history and social anthropology.

A series of special events and activities for a wide range of audiences is running throughout the period of the exhibition, until December 2010. For further details, see the exhibition website: http://maa.cam.ac.uk/assemblingbodies/exhibition.
