Something Borrowed, Something Blue: The Strange History of Aristotle's Masterpiece, by Prof. Mary Fissell.
Aristotle's Masterpiece is neither a masterpiece nor by Aristotle. It was the best-selling popular book about reproduction from its first publication in 1684 all the way into the 1930s. It offers us a rare window into plebeian sexuality, popular medical books, and reading practices.
Speaker: Professor Mary Fissell (The Johns Hopkins University)
