Shakespeare Traveling Exhibit and English Tea


"And there's the humor of it" Shakes

The Medical Library is hosting the traveling exhibit: “And there’s the humor of it”: Shakespeare and the four humors.

During Shakespeare’s time, it was believed that the four bodily humors (blood, bile, melancholy, and phlegm) formed the foundation of people’s physical and mental health and determined their personality. These four humors contributed to the emotions of anger, grief, hope, and fear, which played such a role in Shakespeare’s writings.

Writings featured in the display come from the National Library of Medicine and the Folger Shakespeare Library.

To celebrate the exhibit at SIU, please join us for an English tea and period music on Thursday, November 14, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.  Enjoy refreshments and view the exhibit, while listening to live music performed by our own Carol Gordon (flute), her daughter, Kelsey Thornton (cello), and Debbie Eddy (flute).   

The exhibit will be on display through December 13.

Library Closed Veterans Day


SIU School of Medicine Library will be closed on Monday, November 11, 2013 in observance of Veterans Day.
