A Cultural Cartography
This chapter accounts for the emergence of different kinds of collections in specific locations: London, Edinburgh, and Dublin as British capitals and renowned centres for medical education; and Glasgow and Manchester as other major medical and museological centres. Within these locations we encounter the communities of practice that coalesced around and deployed collections, and through them the role of material culture in the medical marketplace and the construction of pathology as a discipline. The account takes the reader through different scales of analysis, dealing with the interplay between individual, institutional, disciplinary, artefactual, and architectural histories. Together these different angles generate a rich account of the cultural cartography of the pathology profession (or lack thereof) in nineteenth-century Britain.
