With Dr Ashley Younger, Nuffield Department of Women's Reproductive Health

Join Ashley to explore her research into reproductive health. The focus of this talk will be on medical devices in women's health, using the vaginal speculum from the collection. We will discuss the history of the vaginal speculum and the importance of including the voices of women in the design and implementation of reproductive health technology.

Part of our Research Spotlights Series.


On the last Monday of the month join Pitt Rivers Museum researchers in the galleries for interactive talks bringing cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary research to life. In 2023, connect with objects and images from the collections and get to know the work of visual and evolutionary anthropologists, curatorial activists, health-care researchers and many other specialists who are accessing the museum to take their research in new directions and to connect with new people.  

Where: Meet underneath the Star House Crest Pole (Haida Totem Pole) in the Museum’s Court for talks to start at 12.30.  

Who: All are welcome to attend, from families to museum aficionados!  

Accessibility: Talks will be wheelchair accessible, may involve material that can be handled and we can provide follow-up info over email for visitors.
