The Casebooks Project: Simon Forman and Richard Napier's Medical Records, 1596-1634. (360G-Wellcome-090619_Z_09_Z)

The project s primary goal is to produce an electronic edition of Forman and Napier s casebooks. This will contain roughly a million words of transcribed text, plus an extensive editorial apparatus. Users will be able to view the records either as facsimile transcriptions or to interrogate them, generating tables of associated cases. The edition will be mounted on an open-access website which will include: a scholarly introduction, as one would expect of a critical edition; more accessible mater ial introducing the casebooks and Renaissance astrology and medicine; instructions for using the edition for scholarly and pedagogic purposes; and full technical documentation. The project s second major objective is to use the edition of Forman and Napier s casebooks to initiate collective reflections amongst historians of medicine about patients and medical records. Scholars will be brought together in two workshops. The first will introduce the edition, consider the current state o f work in the field, and establish essay topics for an edited volume on the patient in history. Draft essays will be circulated and discussed at the second workshop. The resulting volume will present cutting edge research on the patient in history and set the standard in the field for future scholars.
