"Art and Science in the 18th Century"
Mondays, July 9 - August 6, 2018
 

Until about 1800, “science” included not only the fields we expect: biology, chemistry, and what is now called physics, but also medicine and technology. Illustrations, paintings, and even simple line drawings had the power to communicate science to a large audience. This course examines the intersection of art and science during the eighteenth century. Topics include print culture, production of “archetypal” images, circulation of knowledge, and ideas of the Enlightenment. Dr. Sivitz teaches in the Department of History at Idaho State University, where he specializes in early America, the Atlantic World, Race and Slavery, the social history of disease and medicine, and the circulation of knowledge in the eighteenth century. His art historical interests span the early modern period, particularly the themes of science, medicine, and political commentary.
