Disease, Disability and Medicine in Medieval Europe
6th-7th December 2014
University of Nottingham
This year’s event focuses on infectious diseases and long term sickness and is co-hosted with the ‘Homo Debilis’ Creative unit at the University of Bremen. The conference will be preceded by a Graduate Workshop on medieval disability on 5th December which is free for all Graduates with an interest in disability studies.
We are inviting papers on the impact, description, detection and causes of infectious diseases in all areas of medieval health and wellbeing and we are particularly interested in papers that consider a cross-disciplinary approach between the medieval and other periods.
