Premodern Health, Disease, and Disability

Discipline:History

This series is timely as the fields of premodern health and disability studies have grown rapidly in the last decade. To date, there is no series concentrating on early medicine, disabilities, or health generally (see related series below). The series would cover all topics concerned with health, disease, and disability—including injury, impairment, medical care, physicians, and hospitals—before about 1800. The board would entertain material from all parts of the globe, but given our own contacts will encourage those studying Europe and the Mediterranean from antiquity to the end of the Early Modern period.
