Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 2002 - Social Science - 195 pages
Through a detailed analysis of exterior and interior images of the female body, this book examines the relationship between human reproduction and cultural representation from 1750-1910. With examples drawn from medical archives, covering engraving, photography, radiography, and microscopy, the book is interdisciplinary in approach, ranging across feminist theory, history of medicine, philosophy of science, and the history of photography.
