Alarcon Awarded Fulbright Grant for 2015-16

Published July 10, 2015

fulbrightDoctoral candidate Carolina Alarcon has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Program grant for dissertation research in Spain for the 2015-2016 academic year. Carolina is currently researching at the University of Valencia’s López Piñero Institute for the History of Medicine and Science.  She will be traveling to London during the summer to conduct research at the Wellcome Library.  Her research examines how printed images effectively interpreted and broadcasted early modern understandings of medicine and anatomy. Her research aims to tie agents of Spanish anatomical medicine to the broader history of natural science and medical knowledge during the Renaissance by offering analyses of a cluster of anatomical images produced by Spanish physicians during the sixteenth century.
