Aimee Hisey Hidden Knowledge: Jewish medical practitioners, secret business partnerships, and seventeenth-century Latin America Inspiration Dissemination

    • Education

In this episode, science historian Aimee Hisey talks with Inspiration Dissemination hosts Daniel Watkins and Adrian Gallo about her research on the lives of Jewish surgeons living in the 1600s Latin America. In the viceroyalties (similar to what we in the US think of as colonies), Jewish medical practitioners found ways to get around royal mandates forbidding Jews from attending medical school. Aimee's work investigates how medical knowledge exchange circumvented political oppression. She discusses the difficulties in finding out information that was kept secret, piecing together information from the Spanish Inquisition, ship logs, and diaries to understand the lives of people 400 years ago.
