Book Launch: ‘Gaspare Tagliacozzi and Early Modern Surgery: Faces, Men, and Pain’, by Paolo Savoia.


Join us for the launch event of the English edition of Paolo Savoia’s new book. Paolo will be joined by Evelyn Welch and Elaine Leong (UCL) to introduce his publication, which examines the work of Bolognese physician and anatomist Gaspare Tagliacozzi to explore the social and cultural history of early modern surgery. ‘Gaspare Tagliacozzi and Early Modern Surgery: Faces, Men, and Pain’ discusses how Italian and European surgeons' attitudes to health and beauty – and how patients' gender – shaped views on the public appearance of the human body.

The event will be accompanied by a drinks reception.

Please meet at the Strand Campus reception at 17:50 to be taken up to the Anatomy Museum, if external to King's.
