Please join us in the Green Library Rotunda from 4:30 - 6:30 PM on Thursday, October 5th, for a reception to celebrate Professor Paula Findlen's Embodied Knowledge exhibition.

Embodied Knowledge: Women and Science before Silicon Valley explores the long history of women pursuing scientific, medical, and technical knowledge from the Middle Ages through the mid-twentieth century. The exhibition showcases Stanford’s considerable holdings for this subject, including the university's role in this history, and displays these materials from colonial Mexico, North America, Western Europe, Britain, Japan, Korea, South Asia, and the Middle East. 

Embodied Knowledge was curated by Stanford History Professor Paula Findlen with contributions from a diverse group of faculty, curators, and graduate students across the institution. Deardra Fuzzell, exhibits designer, managed the production and installation of the exhibition assisted by Elizabeth Fischbach, retired exhibits designer.
