Registration: Medicine and Modernity in the Long Nineteenth Century (9/10-11/2016)

st-annes-collegeRegistration for the upcoming conference, Medicine and Modernity in the Long Nineteenth Century to be held September 10-11, 2016 at St Anne’s College, Oxford, is now open, and links to the full programme and registration page can be found here: https://diseasesofmodernlife.org/conference-2016/.

In this two day interdisciplinary conference, hosted by the ERC project Diseases of Modern Life: Nineteenth Century Perspectives, you will explore the phenomena of stress and overload, and other disorders associated with the problems of modernity in the long nineteenth century, as expressed in the literature, science, and medicine of the period. By tracing the connections drawn between physiological, psychological and social health, or disease in the era, the conference aims to offer new ways of contextualising the problems of modernity facing us in the twenty-first century. It is particularly interested in comparative perspectives on these issues from international viewpoints.

Keynote Speakers: Professor Laura Otis (Emory College of Arts and Sciences) and Professor Christopher Hamlin (University of Notre Dame)
