Voltaire was a hugely prolific writer of short prose works. René Pomeau, in a rare bon mot, writes that Voltaire is ‘interminably brief’. Scholars don’t quite know what to do with this vast part of Voltaire’s œuvre  and they remain little studied. In the late eighteenth century to the late nineteenth century editors bundled these works together in volumes called ‘Mélanges’.

Voltaire was a hugely prolific writer of short prose works. Professor Nicholas Cronk from Oxford University will explore how these miscellanies constitute an intrinsic part of Voltaire’s innovative authorial posture and are pivotal works for understanding Voltairean polemic.

Artifacts from the Maude Abbott Medical Museum provided inspiration for Text’art, a group of six Montreal fibre artists to create new works of art, on view at the Osler Library of the History of Medicine beginning May 17. Each artist had her own method for selecting a piece from the Museum collection. To enhance the exhibit and illustrate the creations, the artifacts themselves, as well as other material and books from the Museum and the Osler Library, are on display. The exhibit places textile practice in the larger context of scientific visualisation and communication.

The notion of autopsy (from the Ancient Greek autos and opsis: to see for oneself) designates the prime operation in the development of knowledge. Even though the common meaning of autopsy, that of cadaveric examinations, only becomes lexicalized in the 19th century, the word is diversely used in history, religion, medicine and philosophy.
