Tuesday, October 26, 2010 @ 4:00 pm
Special Collections (984 Memorial Library)
This session in Special Collections (984 Memorial Library) affords us the opportunity to examine 19th- and 20th-century titles from the Science and Religion Collection (gift of Prof. Numbers) and the Schadewald Collection on Pseudo-Science, as well as early printed books of secrets and treatises on the philosopher's stone from the Duveen Alchemy and Chemistry Collection. Professor Ronald Numbers will speak on some highlights in these collections as a way of introducing us to the print cultures of alternative and occult science. For location and directions, see http://specialcollections.library.wisc.edu/location.html.
This program is part of the A.W. Mellon/Helen C. White Interdisciplinary Workshops in the Humanities, sponsored by the Center for the Humanities at UW-Madison with support from the A.W. Mellon Foundation and the College of Letters and Science.
