Joris Vandendriessche en Benoît Majerus hebben een nieuw boek samengesteld over  medische geschiedenis in België: Medical histories of Belgium
New narratives on health, care and citizenship in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

 

 

Over het boek

 

Medical histories of Belgium reshapes Belgian history of medicine by bringing together a new generation of scholars. Going beyond a chronological narrative, the book offers new insights by questioning classic themes of the history of medicine: physicians, institutions and the nation state. While retracing specific Belgian characteristics, it also engages with broader European developments in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Medical histories of Belgium will appeal to Historians of Belgium in various subfields, especially cultural history and political history and medical historians and medical practitioners seeking the historical context of their activities.
