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. I specialize in medical and anatomical manuscripts (my dissertation topic), but I'm always intrigued by anything strange, uncanny, or unruly. I work as an 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 medieval studies and the modern world.
