ABOUT THIS BOOK
In six interdisciplinary and wide-ranging essays, Ludmilla Jordanova analyzes scientific and medical representations of gender in advertising, paintings, film, literature, sculpture, wax anatomical models, and professional and popular writing about the biological and medical sciences during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She demonstrates that gender as metaphor has had an exceptionally vigorous life in the history of natural knowledge.
