Dr. Rebecca Gibson, a visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame, shares her fascinating research on the history of corsets in this week’s episode. Dr. Gibson’s primary research examines changes in the skeletal structure of women who wore corsets between 1700-1900 CE. She also discusses her work exploring the romantic and sexual entanglements of AI and robotics in science-fiction.
