The History of Pain without Lesion in the Mid-to-Late Nineteenth Century, West
Public Workshop: 19 May 2012, 13:00 – 17:00
Room 416, Main Building, Birkbeck, University of London
Much work in the history of medicine and science has touched on experiences of pain in the modern era. Yet little scholarship focuses on prevailing attitudes, practices, and beliefs among either lay or professional therapeutic communities regarding pain without lesion. This workshop will help to fill the gap. We seek to generate discussion and exchange knowledge around the social, cultural, and medical influences of what we might now refer to as chronic pain sufferers.
Speakers: Dr Daniel S. Goldberg, Dr Andrew Hodgkiss (Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist), Chiara Moretti
Organised by Visiting Fellow to the Birkbeck Pain Project Daniel S. Goldberg (East Carolina University, U.S.), The Birkbeck Pain Project and The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities. Download the Pain Without Lesion Public Workshop Flyer
