Dr Jack Hartnell is Lecturer in Art History at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, where his research and teaching focus on the visual culture of medieval medicine, mathematics, and cartography. He has previously held fellowships at Columbia University, The Courtauld Institute of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte. His recent publications include articles on surgical instruments and anatomical practice, and a book about to be published by the Wellcome Trust and Profile Books entitled Medieval Bodies (April, 2018).
