Peter Bovenmyer

Ph.D Candidate

I'm interested in scientific images from the medieval and early modern periods and more generally, in the ways people have made, illustrated, and experienced books throughout history. The books I know most about are medical and anatomical manuscripts (my dissertation topic), but I'm always intrigued by anything strange, uncanny, or unruly.

I work as and editor for the Journal of the Northern Renaissance and the History of Cartography Project and I’m also laying the groundwork for my own journal, Med/Mod, dedicated to creating dialogue between scholars in the medieval and early modern eras.
