CELEBRATING THE CENTENARY OF AN ENLIGHTENMENT SCOT: WILLIAM HUNTER AND THE ANATOMY OF THE MODERN MUSEUM

A K Bell Library - 11.00am

1 The Hanoverian World of William Hunter

William Hunter, the founder of The Hunterian at The University of Glasgow, was one of the most important medical figures in 18th-century Britain. He grew up and was educated in the west of Scotland before settling in London in the 1740s. This lecture will examine the social and intellectual world in which Hunter worked, taught and collected, exploring the global exchange of objects and ideas which extended from new Hanoverian centres of learning in Germany to the colonies of North America and the newly explored countries of the Pacific.
