Science Lecture: Shocking Bodies: Electricity and Medicine in the 18th Century

Lecture by Dr. Paola Bertucci

Associate Professor of History and History of Medicine; Curator of the History of Science and Technology Division, Peabody Museum, Yale University 

Light refreshments precede the lecture, which begins at 7:00 pm.

Electrical experiments were all the rage in the eighteenth century. Before the invention of electric bulbs, batteries, or currents, the vivid light of electric sparks was employed to stage spectacular attractions for learned and lay audiences. This talk will illuminate the connections between the first uses of electricity in medicine and the fashionable performances that literally electrified audience members and their bodies.

Members and students with ID, free; non-members $15. The Museum is open at 6:20 pm. Reservations required.
