CEU Press Studies in the History of Medicine

Series editor:
Marius Turda, Oxford Brookes University

The history of medicine is currently undergoing a remarkable historiographic transformation, one which this new book series attempts to capture and disseminate among a wider audience. We believe that the ability to innovate and improve upon existing scholarship must be manifest not only through a truly international transfer of historical knowledge, but also through the intensified engagement with various fields towards creating a more interdisciplinary framework for scholarly debates. This book series, therefore, strives to not merely offer original and timely research on neglected national case studies in Europe, but to redefine and diversify the overarching debates on the particularly turbulent periods of modern history during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Besides the task of mediating between the local national histories and their international contexts, there is a pressing need to address the history of medicine within the framework of the entangled history of European modernity. The series’ goal is to look at national medical traditions from a regional and international perspective and to offer an interdisciplinary approach to as diverse subjects as health, hygiene, demography, eugenics, anthropology, genetics and psychiatry. Moreover, while most of the existing medical scholarship focuses on nation-states and dominant groups, this series hopes to bring to light minority traditions by offering a new point of departure and comparative basis for how and why social, ethnic and sexual minorities in themselves advanced their own medical theories.

Complementing the academic networking promoted by Working Group on the History of Race and Eugenics (HRE) at Oxford Brookes University, the book series strives to encourage original works of comprehensive synthesis as well as those innovatively expanding upon current definitions of medical history theoretically and analytically. It is our conviction that this series will serve to further familiarize specialists and the general public alike with a new range of topics within an ever growing field of study that is gaining momentum within the larger academic community.
