Dark Archives: A Librarian's Investigation Into the Science and History of Books Bound in Human Skin
Books bound in human skin might sound like the stuff of horror stories, but the true story behind them is a history of medicine one. Through a mix of lecture and reading from her book Dark Archives: A Librarian's Investigation into the Science and History of Books Bound in Human Skin, Megan Rosenbloom will discuss how 19th century doctor bibliophiles and the clinical gaze they brought to their patient encounters led to the creation of the most macabre books in history, and the lessons we can all learn from this history toward more humane healthcare.
