'Neurological Laboratories’ to Interdisciplinary ‘Centres of Brain Research’: Otfrid Foerster, Wilder Penfield, and Early Neuroscience in Breslau and Montreal
Under specific consideration of the theoretical approaches and practical research influences of “interdisciplinarity” in neuroscientific research, this presentation addresses a time period and a subject of investigation that has only marginally been dealt with in the history of medicine and neurosciences: the influences and the context of the creation of early centres of neuroscientific research at the beginning of the 20th century.
Corruption. A View from an Insider. A conversation with the Hon. John H. Gomery and Bernard St. Laurent
The Friends of the McGill Library present the annual F.R. Scott Lecture
Issues of political corruption have been front and centre in Quebec in recent years. Controversies such as the sponsorship scandal of 2004 and the current widespread corruption in the construction industry in Quebec have put political integrity high on the agenda of the press, and the public. The Friends of the McGill Library are offering A View from an Insider.
This lecture draws on the wealth of marginalia – names, dates, marks, signatures, comments, and drawings – which nineteenth century readers marked in their books. Prof Stauffer uses this evidence to reconstruct the history of how Victorian readers interacted with their books, and how they interacted with each other through their books. Projects such as Google Books make digital versions of these volumes more accessible to modern readers.
