William Cullen and the Medical Enlightenment: An International Symposium
April 5th and 6th 2013 at the RCPE (Edinburgh)
Dr William Cullen (1710-1790), chemist, medical theorist, practitioner, lecturer and author was the most influential teacher of medicine of the later eighteenth-century. This international symposium will bring together scholars for a major reassessment of his achievements and his broader significance for our understanding of Enlightenment culture.
This Symposium, organised by the School of Critical Studies at the University of Glasgow and hosted by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh forms part of our collaborative Cullen Project, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
