A Catalogue of Errors
Finally, Chapter 7 traces the diminution of audiences as the medical museum ceased to be such a prestigious site for the construction and reception of pathology. In part an epilogue, it traces the largely unknown fate of anatomical pathology in the twentieth century, and the function and fate of collections from their rude health in the inter-war period to the regulatory changes of the twenty-first century, including a contrast between the use of pathological specimens in Gunther von Hagens's Body Worlds and the impact of the Human Tissue Act on (more formal) pathology museums. The conclusion concludes by considering the construction of material abnormality on display and the key features of the pathological specimen.
