Medicine in Focus: Photographs, Medicine, Histories

A free one-day workshop for historians using ‘medical’ photographs.

There is increasing scholarly interest in the photographic record of medicine. From photographs of practitioners and patients to medical sites and symptoms, historians are beginning to make productive use of the vast photographic archives of medicine. This one-day workshop is an opportunity for scholars using ‘medical’ photographs (broadly defined), across any period, country or culture, to meet and discuss definitions, theoretical approaches, methodologies, and advantages and disadvantages in researching photographs and medicine. It is envisaged that this will appeal to both historians who use medical or scientific photos in their research, and researchers across any discipline using photographic sources more generally.
