Event Details

Punishment, Anatomy and Recollection

In the early modern city, the connection between public corporal punishment and the anatomical theatre became crucial, and not simply because medical research increasingly relied on bodies of the executed. Visual images of anatomical dissection evoke this history and through it seek to alter notions of life, death and creation. Drawing on the archive of the confraternity of San Giovanni Decollato in Rome - which accompanied the condemned to the gallows and negotiated with the university for the use of bodies - and on a remarkable 1590 drawing of a hanging by Annibale Carracci, I will reconsider this connection and propose how urban memory opened up new potential for the study of the body.

Professor Rose Marie San Juan
UCL History of Art

Rose Marie San Juan (PhD Warburg Institute) taught at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver till 2005. Her publications on early modern Italian urban space and visual technologies include Rome: a city out of print (2001). Vertiginous Mirrors: The animation of the visual image and early modern travel (2011) traces journeys of images from Italy to India, Brazil and Chile; Film and Urban space: Critical possibilities (2013 with Geraldine Pratt) explores how film and film theories have drawn on urban space to argue for what constitutes film’s political potential.
