Social History of Medicine |
Social History of Medicine, which members
receive free, three times every year, is one of the best-known scholarly
journals in the field. Established in 1970 as the Bulletin for the Social
History of Medicine, it publishes cutting-edge research on the history of
all aspects of health, illness and medical treatment in the past, from antiquity
to the present. Papers published in the journal not only seek to expand the
boundaries of the discipline, but also to contribute to the central
historiographic debates of our time. In the section of book reviews more
extensive than in any comparable journal experts from across the globe
examine a wide range of recent scholarly publications of interest to historians
of medicine. The editors, editorial
board and the contributors to Social History of
Medicine are drawn from across the world, and from a range of professions and
academic disciplines. Above all, the journal is committed to advancing
international and interdisciplinary dialogue between different approaches to the
history of medicine in society.
