Sandra Racek

Sandra Racek’s research focuses the intersection of art and science during the 16th and 17th-centuries in Northern Europe. She is interested in critically examining how printed images such as atlases and compendium became sites for processing knowledge gained through scientific inquiries. In particular, she is interested in investigating new methodologies for examining early modern depictions of the anatomized human body in order to gain insight into how cultural knowledge about the body was codified and objectified.
