Exhibit: Sidney D. Gamble in China, 1908-1932

Mon, Aug 24, 2015
All Day
Photographs of China from the early twentieth century are relatively uncommon. Of those images that survived the political upheaval, most were taken by foreign travelers whose photos returned home with them. Such was the case with the extensive photographic work of renowned sociologist and China scholar Sidney Gamble (1890-1968). This exhibition, curated by faculty, library staff, and Duke students, provides an intimate view of China during this important historical period. A companion documentary film will also be on view, created for this exhibit by Christopher Thomas, a graduate student in Duke's MFA Program in Experimental and Documentary Arts. Photography Gallery, Rubenstein Library 1st Floor.

Exhibit: Languages of Anatomy: From Vesalius to the Digital Age

Mon, Aug 24, 2015
All Day
This exhibit celebrates the five hundredth anniversary of the birth of Andreas Vesalius and the medical advances he inspired with his groundbreaking study of human anatomy, "On the Fabric of the Human Body" (1543). During the same year Copernicus published "On the Revolution of the Celestial Spheres," transforming the way we understood our place in the macrocosm, Vesalius was excavating the microcosm of the human body to see what makes us tick. Medical knowledge was no longer to be gained by studying the work of revered past physicians, but by uncovering, layer after layer, the secrets of human anatomy. This exhibit traces the history of medical visualization from Vesalius¿s highly detailed woodcut engravings to the advent of modern X-rays, 3-D imaging, ultrasonography, and thermography¿each offering new, sometimes exceptional, ways to see and understand the human body. Rubenstein Library 1st Floor, Chappell Family Gallery.
