This MA is an innovative and interdisciplinary one-year postgraduate degree, which focuses on the place of medicine in society. The MA will enable students to engage in critical debates within the history of medicine from c.1750 to c. 1950. Students will have the opportunity to explore themes through various media; film, literature, and art, amongst others. At the core of the taught programme is the module on ‘Approaches to Medical History’. The module explores the main historiographical trends within medical history from social history, gender history, post-colonial history to patients’ experiences of illness throughout history.
