Medicine and Society in Tenth-Century Baghdad: Between Greek Theory and Islamic Practice. 20 Sep 2006

In the ninth and tenth centuries, Baghdad was not only the political and administrative centre of a vast empire, but also a colossal medical marketplace where practitioners from different backgrounds vied for the attention of potential patients and patrons. It was here that Greek medical texts were translated into Arabic, and that new and sophisticated Islamic hospitals were established. A major-yet entirely overlooked-source for medical theory and practice in tenth-century Baghdad is the Arabic Medical Compendium by al-Kaskarî (fl. 930), a hospital physician who set out in detail his treatment of various illnesses. In each instance, he not only described the disease and summarised previous medical literature on the topic, but also recorded his own case notes, some involving famous patients, as well as treatments developed by his colleagues. I propose to edit, translate, and comment upon this unique and fascinating new source, thereby making it available to the wider scholarly community. On the basis of this work, and by taking additional, hitherto unexplored sources into consideration while reinterpreting others, I shall also address in a monograph the broader question of elite medical care, public health provision, and popular practices during this formative period.

Laboratory Medical Research in Colonial India, 1890-1950. 10 Nov 2005

From the 1890s several medical research laboratories were established in British India, notably the Plague Research Laboratory, at Bombay (1899), Pasteur Institutes at Kasauli (1900), Coonoor (1907), Rangoon (1916), Shillong (1917) and Calcutta (1924), as well as the Central Research Institute (CRI) at Kasauli (1905). The proposed research will focus on these three establishments for the period 1890 to the 1950s. The primary aim is to fill a major gap in the historiography of Indian medical research as these institutions have only received brief mention in histories of epidemics, public health and vaccination. The research aims to illustrate how these institutions played a crucial role in research in tropical diseases and public health and also in facilitating international research. Their history would unfold the genesis of laboratory medical research in modern India. The research will focus on setting up and funding of the three establishments, highlighting the distinctive orientation and cultural differences of each. These will be linked to conditions of work, available facilities, recruitment and training of staff, etc. The second focus will be on their engagement with contemporary international and local medical research. While contemporary medical research and experimentation had increasingly become international and collaborative endeavour, the main concern behind the setting up of the laboratories was to provide better health care for the military and civilian population of the colony. The implications of this dual engagement of the laboratories will be analysed. The third focus will be the role of these institutions in influencing public health provisions and in shaping public opinion about modern medicine in colonial India. The laboratories developed during a period of increasing nationalist assertion in India. The focus will be on the interface of laboratory research and public health. In summary the project will provide a comprehensive analysis of laboratory research in India through the study of these three establishments and further the historical elucidation of modern medicine in India.

The Social, Medical and Political Response to Infertility in Later Twentieth-Century Scotland (1950-1990). 14 Jun 2006

This study will explore the interface between infertility, sexual dysfunction, health and sexuality in Scotland between circa 1950 and 1990. It will examine reproductive pathologies, technologies and ethics in terms of both the formulation and medical implementation of infertility-related policy, and gauge how medical ideologies and agencies interacted with broader socio-legal concerns and processes. The project will address the two major areas of contention within the history of infertility: aetiological debates and the implications of treatment. It will deconstruct the major causal theories debated in later twentieth-century Britain, relating them to broader social concerns and medical ideologies. It will also examine the social, legal, moral and ethical implications of treatment, and the social politics surrounding the desirability of new technologies. Techniques devised to treat the condition have raised highly complex and contentious issues which go far beyond the technical and medical considerations that have received most publicity to date. Therefore, an examination of the social context and contestation surrounding these issues will be central to the research. The study will compare the Scottish experience with the remainder of the United Kingdom, in order to explore whether there was a distinctively Scottish dimension to the social politics of reproduction in this period, given Scotland's separate traditions of law, local government and medical practice, and the distinctive influence of the Scottish Churches on governance north of the Border.

Additional funds for a study entitled "The role of stimulant drug treatment in children's moral understandings of the self". 20 Sep 2006

This study contributes children's voices to the national debates (eg. President's Council on Bioethics) over the ethical implications of rising child psychiatric diagnoses, increasing use of drugs in child psychiatry, and "enhancing" performance with psychotropic drugs. These voices provide an empirical basis for ethical debate, judgement, and decisions in national policy arenas, which had previously not been taken into account. Findings from this study will also inform clinical and parental practices around child behaviour management, diagnosis and treatment.
