This grant application requests funding to support a one-week archival visit to Oxford. I wish to make a detailed study of a single fifteenth-century manuscript, Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Rawlinson c. 299. This manuscript contains a collection of medieval medical recipes written in English. The hand-written collection comprises about 150 recipes in total, including some charms and a uroscopy. A unique point of interest is that the manuscript had a known owner and location in the sixteenth-cen tury. My investigation will consider this later owner's use of this medieval medical material by charting the exact nature of his annotations and interractions in the manuscript.

Visualising Illness and Pain. 31 Mar 2016
Drawing on the varied perspectives of artists, historians, art therapists, curators, clinicians and social scientists, the proposed workshop will explore a series of questions relating to the visual representation of illness. Focusing specifically on contemporary works made in response to first-person encounters with illness, the workshop will consider what issues are at stake in reading these artefacts as subjective expressions of pain and suffering. The event will comprise two parts. The fi rst, taking place on a Friday afternoon and evening, will be open to the public, and will include a keynote address by Joanna Bourke and a panel discussion between artist Deborah Padfield, clinician Joanna Zakrzewska and social psychologist Alan Radley. The second, taking place the following day, will take the form of a series of panel discussions involving practitioners from different disciplines, with the aim of addressing a number of clearly defined research questions. We hope that the w orkshop will ultimately function not just as a one-off event, but also as a scoping exercise for a larger collaborative project. One of its likely outcomes will be the planning of an exhibition (with accompanying catalogue) that will be displayed both online and in the Peltz Gallery, Birkbeck.

illustrated lectures to members of the general public - with a direct link to the Wellcome Trust and the Wellcome Collection 16 May 2007
I have been taking my lectures on the History of the Origins of Vaccination to audiences of the general public in recent times, having also addressed meetings and conferences of professional groups for many years. These lectures and talks are based on my researches into the topic. My object in doing this is to make new historical information available to members of the public in an easily understood manner, creating a learning experience which is both interesting and entertaining. The actual and intended audiences include: History Groups, Local History Groups, WI Science Groups, national Women's Register Groups, The University of the Third Age (U3A), Probus, Museum Societies, The NADFAS Associated, Village Residents Societies, Universities, colleges and schools. Collaboration with the Wellcome Outreach initiative has been offered.
'History of Clinical Iatrogenesis: Before and After Ivan Illich' workshop to be held at the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, University of Manchester on 19th May 2006. 22 May 2006
History of Clinical Iatrogenesis: Before and After Ivan Illich Precisely 30 years ago, the social critic Ivan Illich published his book Medical Nemesis: The Expropriation of Health, in which he presented several cases of iatrogenic diseases as a way to illuminate the intrinsic flaws of highly institutionalised, professionalised, technological modern medicine. He problematised modern medicine because, in his view, it deprived people of illness experiences and simultaneously inhibited autonomous efforts to maintain health. Since the publication of Medical Nemesis, critics from medical sociology, policy and even inside medicine engaged with Illich's ideas of 'iatrogenesis'. In contrast, there has hardly been any debate in the history of medicine. Although adverse effects of medicine had long been noted and commented on inside and outside medicine with words such as 'poisoning' and 'toxicity', the conditions that Ilich referred to as 'iatrogenic' diseases emerged in the post-war period, and they were correlated with the rise of new medical therapies, new technologies, the use of new drugs such as penicillin and cortisone, and surgical techniques such as organ transplantation. The term has resurfaced in the public domain more recently, in the context of morally- and politically-charged discussions over the (re-)emergence of infectious diseases such as MRSA and AIDS. This meeting has emerged from work on the Trust-funded grant on Fungal Diseases and Modern Medicine: Mycology, Aspergillosis and Iatrogenic Diseases.
