Welcome

portretfoto_Marieke_Hendriksen_Echt_Mooij_fotografie.vierkant-5979Welcome to my website! I am a historian of science, art, and ideas, specialized in the material culture of eighteenth-century medicine and chemistry. I currently work at Utrecht University as a postdoctoral researcher within the ERC-funded project Artechne. The project studies how technique was taught and learned in art and science between 1500 and 1950. Although the term ‘technical’ is readily used today, presently a history of the shifting meanings of the term ‘technique’ in arts and science is lacking. My research is aimed at closing this gap in intellectual history, a.o. through the development of an interactive semantic-geographical map of ‘technique’ and related terms.

I received my PhD from Leiden University in 2012 and have held fellowships at the National Maritime Museum in London, Groningen University, and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. The topics of my publications range from historical anatomical collections and medicine chests to anatomical preparation methods and the production of coloured glass.

If you would like to contact me, please send an email to info@mariekehendriksen.nl or use the contact form below. I am happy to answer questions regarding my research and publications or eighteenth-century history of science and medicine more generally, and to engage in public outreach activities.

Please read my personal research blog, The Medicine Chest, check my Academia.edu profile, my LinkedIn profile, my Utrecht University staff page, our Artechne website, or follow me on Twitter if you want to know more about my work.
