Conference "Provisional balances" within the cycle of conferences "From memory: history, medicine and science in the time of the Viceroyalties"
Next Monday, April 4 at 19:30 p.m. The fourth and last session of the cycle of conferences "From memory: history, medicine and science in the time of the Viceroyalties" organized by the Health Sciences Foundation will take place in the Auditorium of the International Institute.
The session called "Provisional Balances" will be presented and moderated by Mr. Diego Gracia (President of the Health Sciences Foundation) and will include the following communications:
-“Travelling diseases”. Given by D. Guillermo Olagüe de Ros. Professor of History of Science at the University of Granada.
-“Food, medicine and other travel products”. By Mr. Alberto Gomis Blanco. Director of the Department of Health and Medical-social Sciences. University of Alcala de Henares
The Health Sciences Foundation once again organizes the cycle "From Memory" which aims to study the situation of health and science in different historical stages. On this occasion it is dedicated to the Viceroyalties, administrative representations that the Spanish crown established due to the distances of its possessions.
In the case of the Indies, the Viceroyalties of New Spain, Peru, New Granada and the Río de la Plata developed from the XNUMXth century. Although some have been known to the public for their magnificence, less is known about the scientific and health advances that were carried out in their territories. Historians of science will analyze these advances in an expeditionary trip around what today constitutes the Latin American and Caribbean regions.
Free entry until complete seats.
