Fresh Ink: The Experiential Caribbean
Congratulations to Pablo F. Gómez (2009-10 Paul W. McQuillen Memorial Fellow) on the publication of The Experiential Caribbean: Creating Knowledge and Healing in the Early Modern Atlantic. His book explores how Caribbean people created authoritative, experientially based knowledge about the human body and the natural world during the long seventeenth century. An Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical History and Bioethics and the Department of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Gómez has served on the JCB’s long-term fellowship selection committee and is a stalwart member of our community. In September, we will be holding a conference exploring the production of scientific knowledge in the Americas, where The Experiential Caribbean will be required reading. Bravo, Pablo!
