  • Lloyd Library & Museum 917 Plum St. Cincinnati, OH USA (map)

This lecture by 2018-2019 Curtis Gates Lloyd Fellow, Cole Imperi, introduces attendees to the concept of thanabotany, the intersection of ethnobotany (the relationship betwen plants and people) and thanatology (the study of death and dying).

Pioneered at the Lloyd Library in 2018, thanabotanists research burial objects, old medical texts and the symbolism depicted in ancient art.
