Proposals are welcome for scholars in all stages of their careers.
This virtual symposium will explore alchemy’s practical and applied uses and their lasting impact on chemistry, technology, medicine, experimentation, and the marketplace. Through explorations of entrepreneurship, patronage, and commerce, the event will examine the place of alchemical knowledge, ingredients, and products in a proto-industrial developing global market. Proposals were welcome for 10-minute virtual presentations or collaborative round tables related to practical applications of early modern alchemical knowledge. Virtual panels and workshops will be held on May 20-21, 2021 from 11am–3pm EST.
