We’re delighted to welcome Dr. Melanie A. Kiechle for a conversation about science, medicine, and lay experience–from the nineteenth century until today. Specifically, Kiechle will focus on the role women play/have played in public health–how their medical experiences and testimonies have been received by doctors and the public at large.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2020 AT 7 PM – 8 PM
This FREE event will be hosted on Zoom. Register here!
More About Dr. Kiechle:
Dr. Kiechle is an associate professor of history at Virginia Tech, and author of Smell Detectives: An Olfactory History of Nineteenth-Century Urban America (Washington University Press, 2017). Smell Detectives looks at the relationship between the construction of scientific expertise, on the one hand, and “common sense”―the olfactory experiences of common people―on the other.
