History of Science, Medicine, and Technology
Marieke Hendriksen is a historian of science and medicine, specialized in the material culture of eighteenth-century medicine and chemistry. Her publications range from historical anatomical collections and medicine chests to anatomical preparation methods and the production of coloured glass.
At Utrecht University she works as a postdoctoral researcher within the ERC-funded project Artechne. The project studies how technique was taught and learned in art and science between 1500 and 1950. Although the term ‘technical’ is readily used today, presently a history of the shifting meanings of the term ‘technique’ in arts and science is sorely lacking. Marieke;s research is aimed at closing this gap in intellectual history, a.o. through the development of an interactive semantic-geographical map of ‘technique’ and related terms.
