A five-week seminar for sixteen college and university faculty members to explore the intersections of religion, economics, and medicine in the midieval interpretation and treatment of disease.

“Health and Disease in the Middle Ages” will be a five-week seminar for college and university teachers to be held June 17-July 21, 2012, in London, England. Administered by the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and based physically at the Wellcome Library in London—the world’s premier research center for medical history—this Seminar will gather scholars from across the disciplines interested in fundamental humanistic questions of health and disease. A primary goal of “Health and Disease in the Middle Ages” will be to explore how scientific technologies of assessing disease prevalence and identifying pathogens (particularly leprosy and plague) can inform humanistic methods (historical, literary, art historical, and linguistic) of interpreting health-seeking behaviors and cultural responses to disease. This Seminar, co-directed by a historian and a bioarcheologist, connects with the NEH’s “Bridging Cultures” initiative.
