Just an FYI if you stumbled across this site. Its basic function (hosting my academic profile) has been superseded. You may now visit https://ivytech.academia.edu/AllenShotwell to get the content (updated fairly often) I originally placed here.
This site is more of a professional web site. I am not a blogger, and although I will post things from time-to-time, I don’t intend to offer ongoing and regular posts.
In 2011, a group of historians gathered at Oregon State University to consider the role of vivisection and animal use in medicine (more details here). The resulting papers are appearing in a special issue of the Journal of the History of Biology, but several of them are now appearing on line first.
