An excellent audio slideshow tour, given by Senior Curator for Anthropology, Anita Herle, of a fascinating new exhibit at the Cambridge University’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology: “Assembling Bodies: Art, Science, and Imagination.”

The exhibit does not seem to present actual bodies — à la Body Worlds — but rather asks probing questions about how the human form is known, represented, experienced. It asks how we understand ourselves through our visible, outward selves, and the invisible things that make us who we are.
