Research interests

I have long-standing research interests in family, gender, urban and demographic history in nineteenth and twentieth-century Britain, as well as industry-state relations in the twentieth century, business history and particularly medical history.  I am interested in the relationship between business and medicine, having published on the history of hydropathic establishments and on medical practitioners and the business of life assurance.  I have published on the history of social welfare, and much of my recent research has been on the history of the medical profession, the history of hospitals and Joseph Lister.  Currently I am examining the history of hospital infection control in Britain between c. 1870 and 1970 as part of a project funded by the Leverhulme Trust (see below).

Grants

Currently I am co-holder, together with Professor Anne Marie Rafferty of King’s College London, of a Research Project Grant from the Leverhulme Trust, entitled ‘From Microbes to Matrons: infection control in British hospitals, c1870-1970’.  The £223,827 award is for three years and began in October 2013.  The study focuses on operative and post-operative practices, based on medical and nursing textbooks and training materials, and on administrative and case records from four hospitals with which Joseph Lister or Florence Nightingale were associated, two in Scotland and two in London.  I am responsible for the Scottish half of the research and shares responsibility for the overall direction of the project with Professor Rafferty.  A PhD student, Susan Gardiner, began work in September 2013, co-supervised by myself and Professor Nicolson.  The grant also funds a part-time research assistant, Dr Iain Hutchison, based in the Centre who began in September 2014.

Teaching

Currently, I co-supervise a PhD student, Susan Gardiner; I teach classes for the optional courses, History of Medicine I and History of Medicine II for the MSc/MLitt in History; and I contribute to the teaching of the Student Selected Component for medical students.
