I’m an Associate Professor at Medical Museion interested in the visual culture of medicine. My current research project, however, concerns the history of blindness and it’s intricate relation to sight, the realms of touch and sound and the objects used to render the world perceptible to the blind. Drawing on Medical Museion’s historical collection of artifacts designed for the visually impaired and used in teaching and rehabilitation, I will approach the history of blindness, ca. 1860 – 1950, from a material culture perspective. The project, which is supported by the Velux Foundation, involves a PhD student as well.
