portretfoto_Marieke_Hendriksen_Echt_Mooij_fotografie-5986I am a historian of early modern science, art, and ideas, with a particular interest in material culture, art and knowledge theory, the history of sensory perception, and digital humanities research methods. I currently work at Utrecht University as a postdoctoral researcher within the ERC-funded project Artechne, and I am co-leading the NWO-funded project Art DATIS.

I received my PhD from Leiden University in 2012 and have held fellowships at institutions such as the National Maritime Museum in London, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Wellcome Trust grant), the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, and the Science History Institute in Philadelphia. The topics of my publications range from historical anatomical collections, medicine chests and anatomical preparation and modelling methods to the production of coloured glass, the transformation of alchemy in the Netherlands, and the emergence of the concept ‘technique’ in art theory.
