Noga Shlomi is a doctoral student at the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas, Tel Aviv University. She holds a BFA from Bezalel Academy for Art and Design, Jerusalem (graduated with excellence) and an MA from The Cohn Institute (graduated summa cum laude). Noga Shlomi is interested in the material aspects of scientific knowledge, in the visual language of scientific texts, and in the roles visual elements and material aspects contribute to the formation and dissemination of knowledge. Her master thesis, titled: “The Tacuinum sanitatis: Practices of Collecting and Presenting Medical Knowledge Between The Middle Ages and The Renaissance,” addressed these subjects through an examination of medieval illuminated manuscripts. Noga Shlomi’s doctoral research focuses on early modern illustrations from astronomy printed textbooks. This project is part of the research group “De sphaera” at the MPIWG. Thanks to digital humanities methods that are applied in the project, her research will enable the analyses of a large number of illustrations, as well as compare and connect her research results to detailed information about the books’ authors, printers, and readers.
