Product Description


"The individual essays are scholarly, insightful and well written."—The British Journal for the History of Science

“The detailed case studies offer insights into a wide range of practices of visualization in the life sciences. Crucially, the essays highlight that scientific seeing cannot be considered in isolation from the use of other senses, in particular tactile engagement with objects under scrutiny. The contributors show that image making is an act of labor and that the “educated eye” requires a skillful hand. The collection thus provides a diverse set of case studies and valuable
interdisciplinary takes on recent and contemporary visualization that may appeal to historians of modern medicine and science who are interested in the role of images, in pedagogy, in the formation of professional identities, and in the relationship between science and the public.”—Isis
