A talk by Carin Berkowtiz

Carin Berkowitz is director of the Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry. She is broadly interested in the intersections of science and medicine in the late Enlightenment and early 19th century and in the place of pedagogy in medical science. Berkowitz received a B.A. from Johns Hopkins University in 2001 and a Ph.D. in science and technology studies from Cornell University in 2010. Her dissertation is titled “Medical Science as Pedagogy in Early Nineteenth-Century Britain: Charles Bell and the Politics of London Medical Reform.”
