The Body in History (2054LHS)

This course focusses on the history of medicine and the body since the mid eighteenth century. We consider the ways in which physical and mental health have been the concerns of governments, and how different populations have been identified as 'fit' or 'unfit'. We look at diverse accounts of bodies and minds emerging at the turn of last century, ranging from sex education and psychiatry to sanitation in the city, and from modern masculinity to the New Woman.
