“Dwarf Identity from the Renaissance to Modern Genetics”

Join us as SLU Professor of English Sara van den Berg discusses excerpts from her new book on dwarfism and disability. The Medical Humanities Reading Group (MHRG), organized by Jennifer Arch and Amy Cislo, includes students and faculty in the WashU departments of History, Philosophy, English, Women Gender & Sexuality Studies as well as departments in the School of Medicine. We have typically met on the Danforth Campus and are expanding to host some meetings on the Medical Campus with the aim of engaging colleagues in research and medicine.
