This lecture taking place on Thursday, February 16th, in Busch 18 at 4:00p will focus on Dr. Baum's work on researching a deaf shoemaker named Sebastian Fisher who chronicled his attempts to cure his disability in early modern Germany.
The following day, on Friday, February 17th, in Busch 18 at 2:30p, we would like to invite participants to sit down with Dr. Baum in a less formal fashion to workshop the article that has arisen out of his research on Sebastian Fischer.
At the second event, light refreshments will be served.
These events are being sponsored by the Department of History, the Center for the Humanities, and the Early Modern Medicine Reading Group.
