The Heart's Knowledge Will Never Decay

For American artist Dario Robleto, artists and scientists share a common aspiration: to increase the sensitivity of their observations. Throughout the history of scientific invention, instruments like the cardiograph and the telescope have extended the reach of perception from the tiniest stirrings of the human body to the farthest reaches of space. In his prints, sculptures, and film installations, Robleto contemplates the emotional significance of these technologies, bringing us closer to the latent traces of life buried in the scientific record. In this lecture, Robleto will preview his upcoming exhibition at the Block Museum of Art, The Heart's Knowledge: Science and Empathy in the Art of Dario Robleto. The exhibition marks the culmination of Robleto’s five-year engagement as Artist-at-Large in Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.

This lecture will be held in-person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.

The “Young Birth-Helpers”:
Obstetrical Education at the Chicago Maternity Center, 1934-1971

The Chicago Maternity Center (CMC) provided obstetrical services for the medically underserved on Chicago’s west side for nearly 80 years (1895-1974).  Medical students and residents were heavily involved in providing patient care, routinely delivering babies in patients’ homes with minimal  supervision by attending physicians or midwives.  Northwestern University Medical School alumni have often spoken of these deliveries as the most formative and memorable experiences of their clinical education. This aspect of the center’s history can provide a window into concepts and practices of the era with respect to experiential education, institutionally-based charity, and evolving concepts of equitable access and quality of care. This work explores the experiences of medical students over time at the CMC through a combination of prior scholarly and popular publications about the center, institutional archives, and interviews with alumni and retired faculty. The use of the CMC as an educational setting also illustrates the role that the academic medicine community played in the marginalization of care for the medically underserved in the United States. Through over-reliance upon physicians in training to provide these services, the maternity center and its university sponsor positioned themselves as charitable institutions eager to serve the community, while avoiding direct responsibility for the care of this segment of the population.

This lecture will be held in-person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
