The history of medicine and global history

  • Health and the body are enduring and immediate
    concerns across historical periods and peoples
  • A focus on medicine and health allows approaches
    to both natural and built environments
  • Focusing on ideas about and experiences of health
    and illness offers a unique perspective on social
    and cultural trends and beliefs shows how they
    filtered into and influenced PRACTICE and daily
    life
  • Exploring the institutions, practitioners and
    consumers of medicines exposes the interplay
    between cultural, political, economic and social
