SIFK Postdoctoral Researchers Jordan Bimm and Iris Clever jointly taught a class in Fall 2021, titled "Human Bodies in History." Spanning early modern cultural practices to modern medicine, science, and technology, the course explored how ideas and practices concerning the body have changed over time and how the body itself is shaped by culture and society. A major focus was  learning how to conduct different forms of historical research to produce cutting-edge humanities scholarship about the human body. Readings introduced key themes and recent scholarship including work on disability, reproduction, race, gender, ethics, extreme environments, and identity. The students formed a dynamic research group that grappled with issues at the heart of our corporeal existence by combining perspectives from the history of science, medicine, and technology, cultural history, anthropology, and science and technology studies (STS).
