Contagion, Cadavers, and The Human Comedy with Prof. Rebecca Messbarger

Prof. Rebecca Messbarger, Professor of Italian, and Co-founder and Director of Medical Humanities

This episode is a fascinating dive into how literature and art, both ancient and new, inform modern medicine. We talk about medieval history and Boccacio’s Decameron and Frankenstein, and a lot more. And who knows, maybe after hearing Professor Messbarger talk, you too will find yourself, a pious pre-med, making room in your schedule to dabble in the humanities.
