The performance of medicine : researching the historical writings on the ritual of tarantism. 13 Jul 2008

The project for which this grant is being sought, is for proposed archival research into specific aspects of medical history relating to the phenomenon of tarantism. The grant will allow for detailed examination of documents and sources contained within two libraries, the Wellcome Trust Library, London, and the Bodleian Library, Oxford, both of which hold significant material relating to the historical study of the medical writings concerning tarantism, which date from the 15th Century through to the present. The key goals of this archival research are that it will contribute toward the writing of a monograph, Ritual, Rapture and Remorse: the dance of the spider in Salento, under contract with Peter Lang, which is a study of the history of tarantism through different disciplinary perspectives, and includes discussion of the extensive amount of documentation within the field of the history of medicine. This will make an important contribution to dissemination of these writings, each of which demonstrates the shifts in approaches to the body, medicine and scientific and philosophical paradigms, most particularly in Renaissance and Early Modern Italy, but also moving through to the developments in psychiatric medicine during the 20th Century.
