  • The Whiteness of Bones: Sceletopoeia and the Human Body in Early Modern
           Europe

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Western Europe between 1500 and 1700 the human skeleton became an object: a scientific object, a natural object, an artistic object, an artisanal object, independent of its bodily origins yet retaining a troubling moral status. Recent work on the uses of the early modern dead body has focused on the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and on anatomical preparations.1 This essay argues that the act of making a skeleton created a scientific object that also had aesthetic value. Making skeletons began in the sixteenth century as the study of human anatomy rose in importance. While skeletons continued to hold unique symbolic and religious significance, this did not hinder their making and use.As a natural ... Read More

  • Synchronic and Diachronic Factors Influencing Medieval Arabic Medical
           Practice: A Study of Ophthalmological Fragments Found in the Cairo Genizah
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article examines some practical aspects of medieval Arabic medicine by exploring medical fragments of the Cairo Genizah written from the eleventh to thirteenth centuries. Most studies of Arabic medical history have focused on philological aspects,1 or on theoretical developments particular to Arabic medicine.2 This is due in part to a dearth of relevant documents, which has prevented an in-depth study of the practical dimensions of Arabic medicine. Although several studies have examined medical practice by analyzing case histories written by Al-Rāzī (d. 932), he is a rare figure in historic literature.3 In general, medieval Arabic medical texts tend to avoid mentioning individual concrete examples and instead ...

  • The Social and Emotional World of Twentieth-Century Anglo-American
           Surgery: The James IV Association of Surgeons

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1964, Boston surgeon Bentley P. Colcock wrote up his report detailing his recent trip to the United Kingdom in his capacity as one of the James IV Association of Surgeons' "surgical travellers." He wrote, "I have always felt that one of the most interesting aspects of a surgeon's life is the unusual men (and women) he meets in his 'surgical world.'"1 Founded in 1957 by a group of British and North American surgeons, the James IV Association of Surgeons was, and continues to be, an international organization that "promotes communication among surgeons across the globe."2 Since 1961, the association has funded trips for several "surgical travellers" each year to encourage "exchange and camaraderie between surgical ...

  • "Falling-Out" in Miami and the History of Culture in American Medicine

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1997, Anne Fadiman's The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down took the medical community by storm. This best-selling work of narrative nonfiction presented the story of a Hmong refugee family in Merced, California, and their tragic journey through the American medical system as they sought care for their epileptic child, Lia Lee. The title signaled the family's folk interpretation of Lia's condition. When Lia had her first grand mal seizure at three months old, her parents took her to the Merced Community Medical Center, beginning a series of misunderstandings between Lia's parents and doctors over the course of four tumultuous years. As the Lees expressed distrust in biomedical treatments, doctors were ... Read More

  • Making a Grade: Victorian Examinations and the Rise of Standardized
           Testing by James Elwick (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Standardization is what makes "testing powerful" (p. 3), states James Elwick at the outset of this book. Tests are designed in a way that allows people in different places to take them and those administering them to trust the results, even if few people actually enjoy the process of marking them. This book covers "an age of examinations" (p. 25), as Gladstone (who famously took a double starred First at Oxford) described it in 1862, repertoires of testing now common having developed in Britain between 1850 and 1900. By the 1880s, testing reached an industrial scale and its popularity had spread beyond Britain. By the end of the century, specialists throughout the West could draw up questions, ship them to various ... Read More

  • A History of Medical Libraries and Medical Librarianship: From John Shaw
           Billings to the Digital Era by Michael R. Kronenfeld and Jennie Jacobs
           Kronenfeld (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract:
      Authors Michael R. Kronenfeld and Jennie Jacobs Kronenfeld, with forty-five years of their careers involved in and observing the changes to medical libraries, librarianship, and health-related education and research more broadly, penned this book as a "final professional contribution" to the field. (p. xix). While partly a larger history of medical libraries and librarianship, the authors chiefly wrote a traditional and uncritical history of the major organizations in the field, the National Library of Medicine and its predecessors, and the Medical Library Association. The National Library of Medicine clearly takes center stage as a juggernaut for the growth of medical library services, librarianship, research, and ... Read More

  • A Miscarriage of Justice: Women's Reproductive Lives and the Law in Early
           Twentieth-Century Brazil by Cassia Roth (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this superb study, Cassia Roth reconstructs the medical, legal, social, and political history of reproduction and fertility control in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil through a feminist analysis that centers the personal histories of the city's women, especially poorer women. Drawing on criminal and civil court cases in which such women appeared as defendants as well as police records, legal documents, medical experts' writings, and other sources produced largely between the late 1880s and the 1940s, Roth emphasizes how ordinary women experienced and negotiated the shifting "regimes of institutional regulation" (p. 5) to which their reproductive lives were subjected. Her work makes a persuasive case for the value of ... Read More

  • A Way of Life: Things, Thought, and Action in Chinese Medicine by Judith
           Farquhar (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This slim book is based on a series of lectures that Judith Farquhar delivered in 2017 at Yale, an installment in the Terry Foundation Lectures on Religion in the Light of Science and Philosophy.The title of the lecture series presents the categories of religion, science, and philosophy as universal, despite their having been extrapolated from Western models and fitting things like Chinese medicine rather awkwardly. That Farquhar was invited to speak shows a welcome broadening of the Terry Lectures' scope. Over the past three decades, she has published prolifically on health and medicine in China, including changing views of food and sex in the post-socialist era, popular self-cultivation and health-maintenance ...

  • Foreign Practices: Immigrant Doctors and the History of Canadian Medicare
           by Sasha Mullally and David Wright (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The number of immigrant doctors practicing medicine in Canada may not surprise most readers, but the contrasting experiences of these foreign-trained physicians just might. Foreign Practices explores the history of physician immigration to Canada, from 1957 to 1984, when more than 15,000 foreign-trained doctors from the United Kingdom, India, Egypt, Taiwan, Romania, and elsewhere arrived and soon comprised one-third of the Canadian medical workforce (p. 11). Why did these immigrant doctors come to Canada during this period' Because Canada needed physicians and welcomed foreign-trained ones … until they didn't. Medical historians Sasha Mullally and David Wright explore this immigrant doctor trend by situating ... Read More

  • Trans Medicine: The Emergence and Practice of Treating Gender by Stef M.
           Shuster (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In recent years, the standards of care in transgender medicine have shifted toward a gender affirming model that aims to minimize a gatekeeping regime that, since the mid-twentieth century, has employed rigid diagnostic criteria to exclude as many trans people as possible from access to care. Typically, this shift is heralded as unambiguous progress, but what has materially changed' Sociologist Stef M. Shuster's Trans Medicine is a unique monograph that combines historical analysis with ethnography. Flipping the conventional scene of research, Shuster focuses exclusively on health care providers, rather than trans people, to study their management of uncertainty in clinical practice and the production of evidence. ...

  • Abusive Policies: How the American Child Welfare System Lost Its Way by
           Mical Raz (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Child abuse policy in the United States is broken, according to Mical Raz, who presents a forceful argument that the root of the problem lies in our recent past. In her compact and incisive book, Raz uses published documents and some archival material to recount key episodes in the 1970s and 80s that led to a punitive approach to child abuse: policy-makers focused on individual family "perpetrators" rather than following the research suggesting that broader social and economic issues were the cause of child maltreatment. Instead of supporting families living in poverty, policies separated children from their caregivers. Raz is particularly critical of the decision to label instances of child neglect as child abuse ... Read More

  • Sweetness in the Blood: Race, Risk, and Type 2 Diabetes by James
           Doucet-Battle (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Sweetness in the Blood, the medical sociologist James Doucet-Battle offers an impassioned critique of the centrality of biological race in the production of scientific knowledge about health disparities in type 2 diabetes. He assails the claim that racial categories are useful in efforts to lower diabetes rates and eliminate health disparities, arguing instead that the use of racial categories drives up those rates by rendering invisible the historical forces that have produced inequalities. In this world of consumption and capital, everyone is at the same biological risk of developing diabetes. What differs are the structural conditions of life: where one lives and labors, the resources at one's disposal, the ... Read More
