Immaterial Culture: Health History Collections in a Digital Era

Friday, November 10, 2017 - 17:30 - 18:00

A part of the University of Toronto’s Sesquicentennial Commemorations,
(IM)MATERIAL CULTURE: Health History Collections in a Digital Era, an
interdisciplinary symposium, will take place on November 10th and 11th,
2017. The event is hosted by the University of Toronto’s Health History

(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.
