Research cluster

Health, medicine and community

Our research

This research cluster brings together individuals who carry out research on health and bodies.

The aim of this research cluster is to think about how bodies move through the world across time periods.

Our members work on a number of projects including the Wellcome Trust Investigator Award: 'Body, Self, and Family: Women's Psychological, Emotional and Bodily Health in Britain, c.1960-1990' and public engagement with schools and Girl Guides about period poverty and body image.

Our work also covers the digital humanities, and projects include looking for sensory experience of preparing or taking medicines and pain/emotion descriptions in C17th texts.

All members of our research cluster work together collaboratively to support each others work.
