This talk by Dr. Levine-Clark examines some of the central historical ideas about femininity and masculinity in Western science. It then will explore how these ideas influenced medical practice, focusing on women’s struggles with the institutionalization and professionalization of medicine. Marjorie Levine-Clark is professor of history and associate dean of diversity, outreach, and initiatives in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver. She has written two books, Beyond the Reproductive Body: The Politics of Women’s Health and Work in Early Victorian England (2004), and Unemployment, Welfare, and Masculine Citizenship: “So Much Honest Poverty” in Britain, 1870-1930 (2015), and published widely in academic journals on gender, health, poverty, and welfare. Her current project examines unemployment and health from the 1830s to the 1980s in Britain. Doors open at 6:30, program begins at 7:00 pm.
