(IM) MATERIAL CULTURE Health History Collections in a Digital Era
November 10 - November 11
As part of the University of Toronto’s Sesquicentennial Commemorations, (IM)MATERIAL CULTURE: Health History Collections in a Digital Era, is an interdisciplinary symposium event 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 (Friday, November 10th). This is followed by an inter-professional (IPE) education day (Saturday November 11th) at the Medical Sciences building, with panels, speakers and exhibits charting the evolution of health history collections in a digital era.
Reception: November 10 2017 (5:30pm – 7:30pm)
Symposium: November 11 2017 (10:30am – 6:00pm)
Location: University of Toronto, Medical Sciences Building
