‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’ This session examines the importance of scientific imagery not only for conveying information but also for fashioning what knowledge is and how it is understood. Topics include physical media of representation, portraits and caricatures, the illustration of time and the impossibility of achieving objectivity.
