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.
