Hello one and all, my name is Sarah Allen. You can find me on twitter @starrysez and it is my pleasure to be curating the twitter traffic of @WetheHumanities this week.
I am a German graduate with a Masters in ‘Medicine, Science and Society’ which provides my academic foundation and, as such, discussion topics for me will be related to the History of Medicine – the themes are not specifically defined, so just join in and share the love. Expect visual elements (there are lots of great images out there) but also exploratory ones due to the endless quest I am on for that elusive PhD topic.
My personal blog, which I leave gathering dust and soon to become a relic in its own right if I am not careful, is entitled Medicine She Wrote. I hope to gain inspiration and motivation from you all. The will is there as is the way – work world just gets in the way sometimes, how rude!
Speaking of work: I manage an online reporting system at Wellcome Trust HQ in London and try to find time to make use of the amazing library that we have next door housed in Wellcome Collection. As this curatorship is related to my personal research and outlets, any queries related to Trust stuff would be best placed to go through the ‘official’ channels @wellcometrust or @wellcomelibrary or even @wellcomecollection, however I am happy to direct cries for help if appropriate.
Just a quick thank you to Tom O’Donnell for last week’s curatorship and bring it on with the #bookshelfie. I have warped my desk divide due to the weight of the books on the attachable shelf….ooops.
