Our library will be hosting the traveling exhibition HARRY POTTER’S WORLD: RENAISSANCE SCIENCE, MAGIC, AND MEDICINE, June 3-July 13!
The six-panel exhibition, using materials from the National Library of Medicine, explores Harry Potter’s world, its roots in Renaissance science and the ethical questions that affected not only the wizards of Harry Potter, but also the historical thinkers featured in the series. Although a fantasy story, the magic in Harry Potter books is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy.
This exhibition is currently traveling to locations in the US, UK and Canada.
