Thirteenth century medicine (Mayor graphic novel, s1, p50)

Thirteenth century medicine

This particular bad guy is actually quite lucky – Arab medicine was probably as good as you could get in the thirteenth century. Arab medical knowledge in this period included the eleventh century scientist and doctor, Avicenna (Abu-Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdullah ibn-Sina).

Still, if given the choice…. But no doubt our machines will look archaic soon enough.

Since leaving the higher education sector I’ve been focussed on thinking about education more holistically – I’m particularly interested in the interface between education and media, but I want to understand better how we can bring our traditional educational institutions to embrace the possibilities that the network and media are opening up. We need to reinvent education to suit the nature of our working lives, and our need to engage in routine lifelong learning. I use my research and writing skills to explore these issues. I consult on education issues and assist postgraduate students with their theses.

As an artist, my new project is Mayor, a graphic novel set in thirteenth century Spain. You can find out more about these activities in my blog:
