Ti 27. sept (ekstern): Minisymposium: Can today’s exhibitions learn from early-modern curiosity cabinets?

Ken Arnold, Wellcome Trust, “Cabinets for the curios: making, keeping and sharing knowledge in museums”

I’d talk a bit about my research into the history of early English museums and the implications of those findings for today’s museology (the subject of my book, which is finally coming out through Ashgate in November), and then end with a few thoughts about what we are planning gallery-wise at the Wellcome Trust.

Camilla Mordhorst, Medicinsk Museion: “The exhibition as a laboratory”

For more than 200 years museum exhibitions have been in the service of Grand Narratives. But as the progress of Science and the Nation is dissolving into a multitude of voices, and knowledge turns into the ability to think anew rather than reproduce, it is perhaps timely to rethink the purpose of exhibitions. I believe that we can be inspired by the early curiosity cabinets, where exhibition and collection were seamlessly united. Objects were not selected to represent a grand narrative, but were displayed for shared inquiry and discussion. Is it possible to give this kind of displays a new renaissance? Turning medical (history) exhibitions into laboratories of the present?

Ti 4. okt (ekstern): Minisymposium: Carnevalesque medicine: Representing and displaying curious, anecdotal, unique, peculiar and monstrous biomedical objects

Adam Bencard, “Cryptic particularities – possible uses of objects and anecdotes in the study of science and technology”.

Camilla Mordhorst, “Revisiting curiosity – utilizing weird and singular objects in exhibitions of recent biomedical science and technology”.

Thomas Söderqvist, “Refusing categorisation and contextualisation – biomedical researchers as singularities”.

Ti 11. okt (ekstern): Martha Fleming (Fellow of the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, UK): “Looking Back Towards the Light: Phenomenopthalmology”

Part personal trajectory, part history lesson, part philosophical investigation, this illustrated lecture proposes ways of thinking about physiology, museology and consciousness that might go beyond the usual short circuits. Martha Fleming will speak about the evolution of her approach to light, the key medium she has in common with astronomers. From chiaroscuro to photon-collecting, from Ramon y Cajal to Minkowski, light is a physical phenomenon with a long history, both in human culture and in medical and scientific research.
