CV for Dr Ivana Bicak

I work on the literary reception of anatomical and medical experiments in early modern Europe, primarily England, Denmark, and Spain. I am interested in contemporary satires of the early Royal Society in London and the Anatomy House in Copenhagen, especially the Neo-Latin critique of experimenting with humans and animals. My current postdoctoral project at the University of Exeter, 'Early Modern Satire of Experimental Medicine in Spain (1493-1700)', examines neglected Spanish satires of medical experimentation with transatlantic drugs. Prior to this position, I held a Junior Research Fellowship at Durham University, and an LBI Fellowship at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies in Innsbruck. I have published articles in Renaissance Studies, The Seventeenth Century, and Milton Quarterly.
