Environments, Expertise and Experience

The Centre for Medical History has been successful in securing Wellcome Trust funding for a five year project: Environments, Expertise and Experience: the Transmission and Boundaries of Medical Knowledge and Practice. The project started in October 2008.

The project will encompass research under three main headings:

  1. Environments, bodies and boundaries
  2. Sexual knowledge, sexual experiences and health
  3. The transmission and boundaries of medical knowledge and practice

In addition, we intend to disseminate and share our work with a variety of audiences, via a range of activities, including:

  • Interdisciplinary seminars
  • Collaborative projects with external organisations, eg Met Office, Devon Record Office
  • Widening Participation activities with schools
  • Public lectures
