    History professor Craig Koslofsky is researching how societies in the early modern world understood skin and how their views evolved. He made a series of videos about his project with the Gerda Henkel Foundation, a German organization that provided Koslofsky a fellowship for his research. He filmed one of the videos at Krannert Art Museum in 2022. The videos are available on the Gerda Henkel Foundation website.
