'Urban Health in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries' seminar series to be held in 2008 at Glasgow Caledonian University. 19 Dec 2007
This is the second 'themed' seminar series to be organized by the CSHHH; and the success of that held in autumn 2007 attests to the validity of this approach. For spring 2008 the broad theme is 'urban health in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries', an important issue which nonetheless has not been dealt with in any systematic way in recent Scottish conferences/seminar series. The notion of 'urban health' has been broadly construed and this has enabled us to bring to the series a group of historians with differing research and publication interests, but whose work nonetheless has much to tell us about health and social conditions, and the treatment of 'problems' in these areas, in the towns and cities of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
'The importance of medical history: Transnational and cross-cultural perspectives on a multi-faceted discipline' conference to be held in Mumbai, India from 15th to 17th November 2007. 17 Oct 2007
The importance of medical history: Trans-national and cross-cultural perspectives on a multi-faceted discipline The proposed meeting will be the first of its type in the South Asian sub-continent - dealing with the important questions of historical method and historiography, from trans-national and cross-disciplinary perspectives; it will allow the audience access to a plethora of perspectives on how to study HOM. The projected audience will be university and college teaching, research and administrative staff of all grades, we well as undergraduate and post-graduate students, doctors, print and TV journalists, and independent researchers. A number of well-known scholars have agreed to attend the meeting, as they acknowledge the usefulness of an event like this in popularising HOM in an important education centre in Asia. These academics, who are attached to a number of Wellcome Trust-funded units, will draw upon an important item of their research - dealing with Europe, North America, Asia and further afield - to develop trans-national perspectives of how to study HOM. This meeting will engender a lot of discussion, which is critically important for an endeavour that seeks to provide new insights to post-and under-graduate teachers about important international developments in the discipline, and the most effective ways of teaching and carrying out research. Themes to be covered: History of pharmacology; Anatomy; Global trade and medicine; Medical genetics and gender; Medicine in the early modern period; Public health in 19th and 20th centuries; Global health programmes and disease eradication; War and medicine; International perspectives on rabies; Scottish doctors and British empire; Obstetrics and surgery; Cross-disciplinary perspectives on leprosy and empire; Hospitals; Medicine and 'witchcraft' in the early modern period; Healthcare in colonial Mumbai/India; Health of industrial labour; Oral histories of contemporary medicine and biological science; History of medical practice and multiple meanings of health.
Global Tuberculosis Control, 1920-1970: The Mass BCG Campaign and Antibiotics on Indian Reservations and in the Developing World. 31 Aug 2007
I will conduct research in the UK National Archives on the Colonial and Foreign Offices' involvement in the origins and development of TB control in, primarily, Africa; if time allows I will begin to explore archival material related to India and New Zealand. I will be looking at records concerning two research questions: how in the 1950s did the Colonial and Foreign Offices discover TB as a problem in Africa? Second, how, principally via the Medical Research Council, did work proceed to control the disease? Looking at these questions fits into a larger research agenda of mine that is principally concerned with the mass TB BCG vaccine campaign lead by the WHO and UNICEF after World War II and the development of several antibiotics from the late 1940s through the mid-1960s. The larger project will result in a book on the origins and development of the global control of TB.
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.
Seminar Series:'Religion, Health and Welfare in Europe from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries' to be held at Glasgow Caldeonian University 2007-08. 18 Jul 2007
Seminar Series: 'Religion, Health and Welfare in Europe from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries', Glasgow Caledonian University, 4 meetings, Semester A, 2007-08 This is an application under the Symposia scheme from Professor John Stewart, CSHHH, School of Law and Social Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University, for £857 towards a seminar series to be held at Glasgow Caledonian University (Semester A, 2007-2008). The seminar series is entitled 'Religion, Health and Welfare in Europe from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Centuries' and it will consist of four meetings. The general aim of the series is to have scholarly discussions - open to members of academic staff, postgraduate and postdoctoral students, and undergraduate students from the host universities (Glasgow Caledonian University and the University of Strathclyde) and throughout Central Scotland - led by invited speakers. The invited speakers are at different career stages which is a strength. It is also a strength that the seminar series will result in a publication. Finally, the series will help the CSHHH establish itself as a centre for the history of medicine (it will help 'capacity building'). An award of £857 is recommended.
