Osler Library Exhibition | Curiosities of Conception; Selections from the Osler Library of the History of Medicine
Drawing from the rich holdings of the Osler Library of the History of Medicine, Curiosities of Conception looks specifically at the ways that medical discourses have responded to and perpetuated the image of the monstrous maternal from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. It does so by bringing together medical texts revolving broadly around the topics of conception, childbirth, and parenting.
The vernissage for this exhibit will be held on May 2, 2019 at 5pm. For more information click here.
