Congratulations to Dr Keren Hammerschlag, Lecturer in Art History and Curatorship (Centre for Art History and Art Theory, ANU School of Art & Design), who has been awarded an ANU Futures Scheme grant for her project “Visualising the Medical Humanities.” Dr Hammerschlag will use Futures Scheme funding to advance understandings of the relationship between art and medicine—past and present—with a focus on representations of anatomy, health and disease, patient experience, and the doctor-patient encounter. She is committed to the examination of depictions of disability, and engaging with medicine’s political, social and cultural contexts through the study of art and visual culture. Before coming to the ANU, Dr Hammerschlag was a Wellcome Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Centre for the Humanities and Health at King’s College London. She also taught in Art History and Women and Gender Studies at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She holds a PhD in Victorian Art History from the Courtauld Institute of Art.
