Research and Teaching Potential
10am – 3pm, Thursday 1 November 2012
Cardiff University, Arts and Social Studies Library, Corbett Road
The workshop showcases the medical history resources held at Cardiff University and in South Wales – from early modern rare books and archival collections, to the records related to modern medical genetics and evidence based medicine. In examining intellectual developments in the social history of medicine, the workshop seeks not only to explore the rich resources available in Wales for the history of medicine but also suggest possible fields and opportunities for future research.
Speakers include: Jonathan Reinarz (Birmingham), Anne Borsay (Swansea) and Keir Waddington (Cardiff).
