Personal profile

Research interests

I research literary and artistic representations and their effects on the realities of medicine, and vice-versa. My core periods are the 'long eighteenth century' and Romantic periods, but I have written on cultural histories of disease, especially, consumption/tuberculosis, and melancholia and depression, from Classical times to the present day. I show how literary templates help to construct social percpetions and therefore lived experience of diseases. I have been involved in, or run, Leverhulme Trust  major research projects on depression, fashionable diseases, and medical writings. See the following:PI Writing Doctors: Representation and Medical Personality ca. 1660-1832 http://writingdoctors.info/  A Leverhulme Trust Major Project; PI Fashionable Diseases: Medicine, Literature and Culture, ca. 1660-1832 http://www.fashionablediseases.info/ A Leverhulme Trust Major Project; Co-Director  Before Depression: Representation and Culture of the English Malady, 1660-1800 (2006-9), £223,000 www.beforedepression.com
