Marieke Hendriksen was awarded an Aspasia talent development grant from Utrecht University to pursue a visiting fellowship with the Center for Science and Society in May/June 2018. Her fellowship centers around archival work at the New York Academy for Medicine for a book project. The book will focus on the “development and transmission of techniques, knowledge and skills between visual artists and anatomists with the purpose of making anatomical preparations and models in Europe and North America between 1700 and 1850” (as per Hendricksen).
Marieke Hendriksen is a historian of science and medicine, specialized in the material culture of eighteenth-century medicine and chemistry. She received her PhD from Leiden University in 2012 and has held fellowships at the National Maritime Museum in London, Groningen University, and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin.
