Blog Posts in the works!

As a follow up to the event we plan on using the blog as a platform for relevant posts from a variety of contributors to continue some of our conversations around human remains and mobility. As it seems pertinent, Kristin Hussey (one of the organisers) has recently written for the Journal of Victorian Culture online about Victorian eye specimens in London’s medical museums:

Happy reading!

Visual Event Diary

Thank you so much to everyone who came along, as speakers and as attendees, for making it such a wonderful and fascinating two-days. We can’t think of a better way to sum up some of the themes and conversations than with this fantastic visual event diary created by the talented and fabulous Lucy Lyons.

We are hoping to build on the conversations here on the blog, so please do check back for more content in the future!
