Keynotes and Symposia
Someone asked me why I chose the by-line adventurer at the intersection
The truth is, I do history the way most people climb mountains. I get my hands dirty, I climb through basements, I travel from one end of the world to the other pursuing a story. I also work at the intersections of fields: History, medicine, science and tech, literature, steampunk, and not a few Gothic horrors. (I was once introduced on public radio as a vampire expert). I work in museums, I work for a British journal, I appear on television–and I wear funny hats. As a result, I give a lot of keynotes and book talks. You can see my TEDx here, and you can book an engagement below. As you can probably guess, I get up to all sorts of things.
Within the United States, I recently appeared as keynote for Drury University’s symposium, and I will be the keynote for Project Fibonacci® STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) Conference. In June 2018, I gave a keynote for the Institute for Medical Ethics meeting in Oxford, UK, ahead of the ICCEC conference. In October, I’ll offer a roundtable at Cultural Crossing of Care in Oslo, Norway, and in November I’ll head to Beijing, China, to deliver a keynote as the honorary chair of a medical humanities conference at Peking University.
“We’re incredibly excited that Dr. Schillace will headline our symposium. She is exceptional at drawing listeners into engaging stories about the intersections between the human experience and scientific inventions.” —Dr. Katie Gilbert, Director of the Humanities and Ethics Center at Drury
