Welcome to the Hagströmer Lecture 2024!

Speaker: Anita Guerrini
Professor of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

How do we balance our need for advances in medical treatment and desire for scientific knowledge with ethical obligations to humans and animals alike? Starting with Jenner’s invention of the smallpox vaccine in the 1790s, medical historian Anita Guerrini looks at the intersection of debates over vivisection, vaccination, and immigration – and the deployment of animals as bodies and metaphors.

Time: May 7, at 17:00

Place: Eva & Georg Klein Lecture Hall, Floor 3 in Biomedicum, Campus Solna
