Scottish Syphilis symposium

The University of Glasgow Library is holding a Syphilis Collection Symposium on 27th January 2015. From its blog:

On the afternoon of the 27th January we will be holding a half-day symposium to explore current research, and research opportunities, relating to a collection of early printed works on syphilis and venereal disease newly described as part of a Wellcome Trust funded project.

The University of Glasgow Library collection ranges from the earliest works on syphilis from the late 15th century through to debates on whether gonorrhoea and syphilis were the same disease in the late 18th and early 19th century.

Selected items from the collection will be on display and there will be refreshments available.

For further details, including information on the speakers, the talks, and on how to book, visit the blog at http://universityofglasgowlibrary.wordpress.com/2015/01/06/glasgow-syphilis-collection-symposium-270115/.

Please be advised - this is not a clinic... :)
