There will also be discussion of murder. \n\nMedical objects have been used in museums to tell clinical\, technical and personal stories. This talk will look at the different ways patients and users of these medical technologies have been represented\, or not\, in recent projects across the globe. How can museums responsibly display medical objects and portray their users in the museum? And should museums be displaying them at all? \nAbout the speaker:\nSophie Goggins is the Curator of Biomedical Science at National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh. She led on the biomedical content in the award-winning new Science and Technology galleries\, which opened in 2016. Her research interests include patient voice and prosthetics. She is currently working on an exhibition called Parasites: Battle for Survival which focuses on neglected tropical disease and opens in December 2019. \n\nDoors at 7.15\, kickoff at 7.30 \nView event on Facebook \nView event on Meetup \n\nThis is event is free to attend\, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk.
