BIOL 475N explores the origins of human anatomy as a modern science in the context of renaissance-era Italy, especially its culture, art, and history. During the in-class portion of the course, students will participate in discussions of science, history, and art, prepare and lead presentations on assigned topics, and perform human cadaver studies. During spring break, students will travel with the instructors to Italy and study in Verona, Bologna, and Florence. While in Italy, students will compare and contrast anatomical waxes to modern representations, analyze the anatomy of Michelangelo, da Vinci, and other artists, and discuss the historical circumstances that gave rise to, supported, and sometimes hindered the development of anatomy as a science.
IT 175 is for students who have little or no knowledge of Italy's language and culture. This course is a co-requisite of BIOL 475N (Anatomy in Italy) and prepares students for the required, embedded Spring Break portion of the course. Properly preparing for an abroad experience helps students to fully exploit their time in the target culture, maximize their opportunity to leverage the study of anatomy while in Italy.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. Contact the program leader, John Waters, firstname.lastname@example.org, for additional information.
