Crazy collections: Healing, ordering, and representing the body in medieval medical recipes

5:00pm-6:30pm on Monday 29 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

This workshop by Hannah Bower explores how recipes for cures - thousands of which were copied in the flyleaves, margains, and pages of merieval manuscripts - were used to order, navigate, and represent ailing bodies. 

The workshop will incorporate opportunites for an interactive question and answer session in relation to manuscript images. It will also explore connections between medieval tendencies to collect, accumulate, compile, and order recipes within larger processes of self-fashioning and modern habits of curating images of ourselves and our bodies through social media.
