On the fringes of science? Natural knowledge and its practitioners in early modern Europe, 1450-1650

Graduate Symposium

Friday 27 June 2008

Old Library, All Souls College, Oxford

Over the early modern period the natural world both in its textual and physical form became one of the privileged objects of interest, study, and trade for a heterogeneous array of individuals across Europe. On its investigation and description a variety of disciplines, professions, and roles were defined in turn. This one-day graduate symposium focuses on those practices and practitioners long kept at the margins of institutional history and its idea of scientific and philosophical knowledge, and now increasingly profiting from historiographical attention. Among the various topics under discussion are anatomy, botany, natural history, alchemy, astrology, and demonology.
