Chronological scope: Premodern is most often defined as pre-French Revolution or about 1800
Keywords: Ancient health, Medieval health, Early Modern health, disease, disability, hospitals, medicine, public health, leeches.
Description : This series is timely as the fields of premodern health and disability studies have grown rapidly in the last decade. To date, there is no series concentrating on early medicine, disabilities, or health generally (see related series below). The series would cover all topics concerned with health, disease, and disability—including injury, impairment, medical care, physicians, and hospitals—before about 1800. The board would entertain material from all parts of the globe, but given our own contacts will encourage those studying Europe and the Mediterranean from antiquity to the end of the Early Modern period.
Proposals Welcome: The series welcomes scholarly monographs and edited volumes in English by both established and early-career researchers. The board would entertain material from all parts of the globe, but given their own contacts will encourage those studying Europe and the Mediterranean from antiquity to the end of the Early Modern period.
Proposals should kindly follow the standard AUP Proposal format and should also include the envisaged table of contents or overview of the volume and abstracts of the proposed chapters or articles.
