The seminars about scientific illustration held at Dijon University in France are simply fascinating. Organized by project coordinator Marie-Odile Bernez, the scholars who have gathered at these seminars have discussed everything from biodiversity to photography to cultural prejudices.
This month scholars will gather to learn about technical drawing aids used by engineers in the 19th century and learn about the way the transatlantic telegraph cable between the US and Great Britain was presented by the popular press in 1858.
The next seminar on scientific illustration will be held on Friday, March 22, 2013 at 10:30 AM. Learn more about this next meeting and the scheduled presenters on the Illustrating Science website.
