The Porous Body Conference - video short

On 30 November and 1 December 2017, we held our first conference at King’s College London. Featuring 18 speakers from Germany, Australia, and across the UK, plus two keynote lectures from Thomas W. Laqueur (Berkeley) and Anita Guerrini (Oregon), this conference considered the broad dimensions of porous bodies in the early modern period.

Listen to Evelyn Welch as she discusses this. Postdoctoral researchers Hannah Murphy, Kathleen Walker-Meikle, and Paolo Savoia then present their areas of research on the project.

With thanks to Thom Undrell for the video and Edward Sanderson for the music.

The Renaissance Skin team would like to express their thanks and gratitude to all speakers at 'The Porous Body in Early Modern Europe' conference for presenting their research and for making this such a successful event. The discussions after the talks were equally as invigorating and so we are delighted at the level of interest from all conference attendees. Professor Kevin Siena, member of our Advisory Board, delivered a wonderful summation of the event in his closing remarks.
