February is Vesalius Month!

February is Vesalius month at Washington University, and we have a number of ways you can learn about the life and work of this 16th century anatomist!  In addition to a physical exhibit in the Glasery Gallery on the 7th floor, we’ve launched a digital exhibit that discusses his life and work.  The section that allows you to compare the title pages of the 1543 and 1555 editions of De humani corporis fabrica is particularly striking.  You can also watch the video below that shows Washington University faculty members Rebecca Messbarger, Glenn Conroy, and Jane Phillips-Conroy discuss Vesalius from a medico-historical viewpoint. 

The most exciting Vesalius event is, of course, the symposium “Vesalius and the Invention of the Modern Body” which we are co-hosting with Saint Louis University from February 26th – 28th.  You can register until February 20th through the symposium website.
