Thanks to the professionalization of science and the rise of the periodical beginning in the mid-19th century, we have lots of images of scientists as depicted in pop culture in the 19th and 20th centuries. Join us to examine a range of images, from cheaply printed black-and-white etchings from the 1890s Review of Reviews, to the glossy pages of the Saturday Evening Post, to the brightly colored panels of Wonder Woman comics. These scientists appear as an Objective Expert, wearing a white lab coat; a Mysterious Wizard with magical powers; and even a rugged and Masculine Hero.

Afterward, feel free to mingle with other guests and the speaker, or spend time visiting our museum.

Admission is free, and no reservations are necessary.
