Long Live the Book

The International Book Conference finished today with presentations from a range of speakers. The overall conclusion was that the Book will not die and in fact is flourishing. Yes, we heard about problems in the Book Trade on the High Street, Academic Publishing and even the death nell of the monograph. But still the book is even more accessible through new channels and technologies.

History lecturer wins research grant from the Wellcome Trust

Dr Andrew Spicer, Senior Lecturer in Early Modern European History, has been awarded a grant of £19,918 by the Wellcome Trust for his one-year project on 'Medical Provision and the Huguenots'. This pilot study will examine the medical assistance provided for immigrants in the context of poor relief during the early modern period. Consideration of the medical contribution made by the Huguenots in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries has tended to concentrate on the work of individuals such as Sir Theodore Turquet de Mayerne or families such as the de Launes or Chamberlens. Exploiting the unique survival of two sets of Huguenot records, this project intends to examine practical medical provision in the French-speaking communities established in London and Sandwich between 1568 and 1573. These sources allow us to assess the medical assistance provided by these communities in the wider context of their social welfare programmes. By engaging with the actual experience of medicine within immigrant communities, the study will provide a unique perspective on the Huguenot contribution to early modern medicine in England. Although the immigrant communities were thought by contemporaries to have a superior system of welfare, its significance and influence has so far not been considered by historians.
