The event is organised by Prof Robin Choudhury (RDM) and Dr Jim Harris. Eight short talks will cover topics ranging from the representation of the heart in collections within the Ashmolean, to the theological interpretation of the heart, to understanding the heart in health and disease, and to the regenerative capacity of the heart. While the seminar is open to the public and free of charge, advance registration is essential to ensure a place. Email Eunice Berry to register.
