Crisis can manifest in so many ways: hospitals going bankrupt, operating in a warzone, sex scandals, etc. But this idea of crisis extends beyond our sources to how we, as researchers, approach our work from funding issues to writer’s block.

Presenting on the theme of ‘Crisis in the Hospital’ will be:

Anna M. Peterson (Independent Scholar): Sex, Lies, and Parchment: Reputation and Regulation at Narbonne's Hospital of the Bourg in the Fourteenth Century

Carole Rawcliffe (University of East Anglia): Surviving Destruction: St Giles’s, Norwich, and the Crisis of the Protestant Reformation

John Henderson (Birkbeck, University of London): Plague, Covid and the Historian

Kathleen Vongsathorn (Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville): Conflicts and Hospital History in Twentieth-Century Uganda

This first meeting will set the stage for this ongoing series. The goal of these workshops is to provide graduate, postgraduate, early career, and precarious faculty with a space to discuss their thesis, research projects, and the questions and obstacles that arise from them. Too often we have worked alone on our hospitals, but the INHH is committed to creating a space where our community can come together and inspire each other’s research.
