Medicine’s Dark Secrets: What Makes YOU Tick?
Just under two weeks till we kick off the fundraising campaign for ‘Medicine’s Dark Secrets!’ I can’t tell you how excited I am about this project!
When I began The Chirurgeon’s Apprentice a little over 2 years ago, I had no idea how many people would be interested in this subject. I’m constantly surprised and delighted by your emails and queries. Your passion for the macabre and wonderful world of medical history fuels my own.
Therefore, it only seems fitting that you tell me what you want to see on ‘Medicine’s Dark Secrets.’ After all, this is as much your project as it is mine. I could never have gotten this far without your support and encouragement, and I want to make this documentary with your views in mind.
Over the next few months, I’ll be running polls to find out what makes your intellectual curiosity tick.
Perhaps you’d like to learn more about anthropodermic bibliopegy? Or why anatomical collections came into existence in the first place? What about the executioner’s role in medical history? Or how body-snatchers dealt with the physical and emotional realties of their grim tasks?
Whatever it is, I want to know!
In the meantime, please have a look at the trailer – and continue to spread the word about ‘Medicine’s Dark Secrets’ in the lead up to the campaign!
I really appreciate your support and enthusiasm!
