Monday 3 July 2023, 19.00-20.00

Sponsor:Medica: Society for the Study of Healing in the Middle Ages
Organiser:Anna Peterson, Independent Scholar, Valladolid
Moderator/Chair:Anna Peterson, Independent Scholar, Valladolid

Acknowledging that the study of pre-modern medicine has often focused on orthodox knowledge and formal networks of communication, this round table discussion seeks to focus on informal networks of care and methods of healing not traditionally included in studies of medieval and early modern health and healing.

Participants include Montserrat Cabré i Pairet (Universidad de Cantabria), Nichola Harris (State University of New York, Ulster), Fiona Lillian Knight (University of Cambridge), Joshua Rice (Royal Holloway, University of London), and Kristin Uscinski (State University of New York, Purchase).
