The Ethics of Displaying Human Bodies Symposium

Hi Dearies, I wanted to spread the word, especially for those in the UK about an interesting symposium happening on Monday, March 21st.

The University of Warwick’s Centre for the History of Medicine will be hosting The Ethics of Display: exhibiting vulnerable bodies symposium at the Arden Conference Centre. The symposium should be a fascinating discussion about the ethics and challenges of presenting sensitive material to the public, especially images or remains of the bodies of former patients.

The symposium is free of charge, contact Sheilagh Holmes at to register. For more information see the announcement here.
