La folie dans le monde antique

‘Madness’ in the Ancient World: Innate or Acquired? From Theoretical Concepts to Daily Life

Christian Laes & Irina Metzler (eds)

Pages: approx. 350 p.
Size:156 x 234 mm
Illustrations:11 b/w, 23 col.
Publication Year:2023

This is the first book volume ever to study the ‘difficult’ subject of congenital, intellectual disability in the ancient world. The contributions cover the Ancient Near East, Egypt and the Graeco-Roman world, up to the late ancient period, China, the rabbinic tradition, Byzantium, the Islamic world, and the Middle Ages in the Latin West. The engaging and thought-provoking chapters combine careful textual analysis with attention to the material evidence and comparative perspectives, not the least those offered by disability history for recent periods in history.

La chirurgie plastique des oreilles et du nez

On the Plastic Surgery of the Ears and Nose. The Nepalese Recension of the Suśrutasaṃhitā

Dominik Wujastyk, Jason Birch, Andrey Klebanov, Madhu K. Parameswaran, Madhusudan Rimal, Deepro Chakraborty, Harshal Bhatt, Vandana Lele and Paras Mehta

Heidelberg Asain Studies Publishing

A thousand-year-old Ayurvedic manuscript containing the Compendium of Suśruta was announced to the scholarly world in 2007. The Nepalese manuscript, since adopted by UNESCO as part of the Memory of the World, reveals the state of classical Indian medicine in the ninth century. It enables us to study the changes in this medical classic that have taken place from the ninth to the nineteenth century, when printed texts began to dominate the dissemination of the work. The present monograph describes the research project focussed on this manuscript and offers an edition, study and translation of the historically important chapter about the plastic surgery on the nose and ears.

Les handicaps au Moyen-âge

Medievalists with Disabilities Roundtable IMC 2024 

Call for abstracts

After five successful roundtables bringing up issues around disability in Higher Education, we propose another roundtable for IMC 2024.

We invite abstracts for 5 minute talks for the roundtable. We understand disability in the broadest sense, incorporating visible and invisible impairments, chronic illness and mental health, to name but a few.

Topics might include:

· Your own circumstances in a HE institution

· Pinpointing a particular issue that needs addressing

· Highlighting an example of good practice in your own institution

· Issues of intersectionality: how disability might interact with other factors that have an impact on marginalized people e.g. gender, class, sexuality, and/or race

You can participate in a roundtable as well as presenting a paper, so please do consider submitting an abstract for this roundtable if you’re already planning to present. You don’t have to identify as disabled to participate, for example if you’d like to share an example of good practice, but priority will be given to disabled scholars.

Please submit a title for your talk as well as a brief summary (no more than 150 words) to Alex Lee ( by 3 September 2023.

We are also seeking a chair for the session, so please let me know if you’d like that role.

Bourse prédoctorale

Predoctoral Fellow (M/F/D), 6 or 12-months appointment

Call for applications

The Max Planck Society is Germany’s premier research organization. The 86 Max Planck Institutes conduct research at the highest levels in the service of the general public, in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sci- ences, and the humanities.

For the Max Planck Research Group “Visualizing Science in Media Revolutions”, led by Dr. Sietske Fransen, the Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History in Rome (Italy) seeks to appoint:

A Predoctoral Fellow (M/F/D) (6 or 12-months appointment)

The Max Planck Research Group, based at the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome, has been formed to examine how scientific practitioners visualize their ideas, illustrate their working methods, and communicate their observations, with a specific focus on the early modern period. We are especially interested in the impact that new media have had on processes of visualization and whether or not changes in these processes reflect new ways of thinking. A new visual culture emerged in the early modern period by those in pursuit of knowledge due to a variety of reasons. These included: new media and new formats (for example printed (fold-out) images and diagrams, paper tools, and the scientific journal); new instruments for observing the world (such as telescopes and microscopes); and new strategies of communication needed for the changing understanding of nature and the world. By comparing media, tools, and modes of communication in different fields of early modern science, such as medicine, music, architecture, astronomy, and mathematics, the members of this research group investigate the impact of new media on the visual communication of science. As a group of historians with expertise in the study of media, visualization, and (the history of) science, the Research Group also investigates the impact of current digital media and tools on (our own) working practices in the humanities and sciences. The group uses a wide variety of research methods and, in doing so, draws upon visual culture, art history, media studies, history of the book, cultural anthropology, and history of science and medicine. In previous years the group has worked on diagrams as abstract visualizations of knowledge, as well as media revolutions and print culture, and we are now especially interested in the practice of drawing as a tool for observation and thought.

More information on the research group including past events can be found here:

We welcome applications from candidates from all disciplines. The working language of the Research Group is English. The positions are to be taken up in the calendar year of 2024.

Your profile:

  • You are currently enrolled as a PhD student at a university
  • You have a clear idea of how a fellowship in Rome as part of this Research Group at the Bibliotheca Hertziana would benefit your PhD research
  • Excellent verbal and written knowledge of English
  • Prior knowledge of Italian and/or German is an advantage
  • Ability to reside in Rome during appointment
  • A willingness to play an active role in the research group’s events, which include seminars, reading ses- sions, and conferences

Your application should include:

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Description of PhD project and intended research in Rome (max. 1000 words)
  • Contact details of two potential referees (no letters)

Our offer:
The appointment is for 6 or 12 months. The position is full-time (39/40 hours per week) and is paid equivalent of 65% of the German Civil Service Collective Agreement (TVöD Bund), level E 13.
Furthermore, we offer opportunities regarding work life balance as well as health promotion services.

The Max Planck society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. Furthermore, The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.

Candidates should submit their application in English on the following website by the end of September 30th, 2023:

Louis Pasteur face aux médecins et aux chirurgiens

Louis Pasteur face aux médecins et aux chirurgiens

Patrice Pinet

Date de publication : 26 juillet 2023
Broché - format : 15,5 x 24 cm • 424 pages
Langue : français
ISBN : 978-2-14-049817-6

Cet ouvrage étudie les rapports qu'a entretenus Pasteur (1822-1895) avec les médecins et les chirurgiens qu'il a fréquentés tout au long de sa vie. Certains ont soigné sa famille et lui-même, d'autres, qu'il a dirigés dans son laboratoire, sont devenus ses disciples et des adeptes de la doctrine parasitaire puis microbienne. Sont surtout exposées les idées de ceux qui ont soutenu cette théorie et ont pu influencer Pasteur, mais aussi de ceux qui ont résisté à cette révolution médicale. Parmi eux figurent des praticiens purs, mais aussi des expérimentateurs. Une large place est donc donnée aux débats, parfois violents et sans concession, ayant secoué les rangs de l'Académie des sciences et de l'Académie de médecine auxquelles Pasteur fut admis successivement en 1862 et 1873. Un historique détaillé des premières vaccinations pasteuriennes dévoile les racines de la défiance envers la vaccination, récurrente malgré les succès manifestes de cette méthode prophylactique.

Les hygiénistes argentins

Más allá del consultorio. Los sanitaristas argentinos como agentes de modernización (1960-1970)

Federic Rayez 

Editorial Biblos
ISBN 978-987-814-197-8

Este libro analiza la experiencia de los y las sanitaristas en la Escuela de Salud Pública de la Universidad de Buenos Aires (ESPUBA) desde su creación en 1958 hasta 1976. Esta institución, y los expertos que se formaron allí, sostuvieron una doble vinculación con agencias estatales de salud y con organismos internacionales especializados.
La reconstrucción de este entramado social y cultural nos devuelve la imagen de un campo formado, ya desde 1940, por médicos y otros profesionales especialistas en salud pública. Por un lado, nos permite comprender la recepción local de la "asistencia técnica" internacional y, por el otro, explorar los límites y alcances de este proceso de internacionalización de la salud pública en el contexto de modernización cultural de los años 60 y 70, sin descuidar las características del discurso experto de estos actores.
Por último, se estudia el derrotero y accionar de estos profesionales en el marco de la burocracia estatal y sus vinculaciones con las políticas sanitarias entre principios de los años 60 y el retorno del peronismo en 1973.

Le De Plantis Libri XVI (1583) d'Andrea Cesalpino

Andrea Cesalpino's De Plantis Libri XVI (1583) and the Transformation of Medical Botany in the 16th Century 

Edition, Translation, and Commentary on Book I Quentin Hiernaux and Corentin Tresnie

De Gruyter
Volume 9 in the series Medical Traditions

In 1583 the Italian botanist and physician Andrea Cesalpino (1524–1603) published De Plantis Libri XVI, made of 16 books (libri), considered to be the first treatise where botany is treated independently from medicine. In so doing, he broke with a long tradition inherited in Western science from Antiquity and perpetuated during the Middle Age through the early Renaissance. De Plantis lays the foundations of scientific systematics through a new focus on plant morphology and natural similarities and became a milestone in the history of Western botany. It is a precious testimony to the evolution of botanical and physiological knowledge in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and illustrates the role of Aristotelian philosophy in 16th-century knowledge. The volume includes an introductory essay about Cesalpino's philosophy and botany, a critical edition of the Latin text, a translation, a commentary, and indexes. It should interest scholars in Renaissance studies, historians, and philosophers of science and medicine, as well as botanists and plant scientists curious about the history of plant sciences.

Le discours sur le handicap, la médecine et la guérison dans le christianisme primitif

Disability, Medicine, and Healing Discourse in Early Christianity 

Susan R. Holman, Chris L. de Wet, Jonathan L. Zecher (Editors)

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Routledge; 1st edition (August 4, 2023)
Language ‏ : ‎ English
Hardcover ‏ : ‎ 194 pages
ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-0367521004

Using contemporary theories drawn from health humanities, this volume analyses the nature and effects of disability, medicine, and health discourse in a variety of early Christian literature.

In recent years, the "medical turn" in early Christian studies has developed a robust literature around health, disability, and medicine, and the health humanities have made critical interventions in modern conversations around the aims of health and the nature of healthcare. Considering these developments, it has become clear that early Christian texts and ideas have much to offer modern conversations, and that these texts are illuminated using theoretical lenses drawn from modern medicine and public health. The chapters in this book explore different facets of early Christian engagement with medicine, either in itself or as metaphor and material for theological reflections on human impairment, restoration, and flourishing. Through its focus on late antique religious texts, the book raises questions around the social, rather than biological, aspects of illness and diminishment as a human experience, as well as the strategies by which that experience is navigated. The result is an innovative and timely intervention in the study of health and healthcare that bridges current divides between historical studies and contemporary issues.

Taken together, the book offers a prismatic conversation of perspectives on aspects of care at the heart of societal and individual "wellness" today, inviting readers to meet or revisit patristic texts as tracings across a map of embodied identity, dissonance, and corporal care. It is a fascinating resource for anyone working on ancient medicine and health, or the social worlds of early Christianity.

Les cultures médico-légales dans l'Europe moderne

Forensic cultures in modern Europe 

Willemijn Ruberg, Lara Bergers, Pauline Dirven, Sara Serrano Martínez (Editors)

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Manchester University Press (August 1, 2023)
Language ‏ : ‎ English
Hardcover ‏ : ‎ 304 pages ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-1526172334

This edited volume examines the performance and role of scientific experts in modern European courts of law and police investigations. It discusses cases from criminal, civil and international law to parse the impact of forensic evidence and expertise in different European countries. The contributors show how modern forensic science and technology are inextricably entangled with political ideology, gender norms and changes in the law and legal systems. Discussing fascinating case studies, they highlight how the ideology of authoritarian and liberal regimes has affected the practical enactment of forensic expertise. They also emphasise the influence of images of masculinity and femininity on the performance of experts and on their assessment of evidence, victims and perpetrators. This book is an important contribution to our knowledge of modern European forensic practices.

Mémoire, anniversaires et santé mentale dans une perspective historique internationale

Memory, Anniversaries and Mental Health in International Historical Perspective. Faith in Reform
Editors: Rebecca Wynter, Jennifer Wallis, Rob Ellis

Palgrave Macmillan

This book is the first to explore memory, misremembering, forgetting, and anniversaries in the history of psychiatry and mental health. It challenges simplistic representations of the callous nature of mental health care in the past, while at the same time eschewing a celebratory and uncritical marking of anniversaries and individuals. Asking critical questions of the early Whiggish histories of mental health care, the book problematizes the idea of a shared professional and institutional history, and the abiding faith placed in the reform of medicine, administration, and even patients. It contends that much post-1800 legislation drafted to ensure reform, acted to preserve beliefs about the ‘bad old days’ and a ‘brighter future’ in the state memories of imperial powers, which in turn exported these notions around the world. Conversely, the collection demonstrates the variety of remembering and forgetting, building on recent interest in the ideological and cultural linkages between past and present in international psychiatric practice. In this way, it seeks to trace the pathways of memory, exploring the direction of travel, and the perpetuation, remodeling, and uprooting of recollection.

Vie, activité, handicap

Vie, activité, handicap : réadaptations et normes médico-sociales

Stéphane Zygart 


Éditions De La Sorbonne 

14 Septembre 2023

À propos Les invalidités semblent chargées d'une part immuable et de fixité, où se mêlent médecine, assistance et monstruosité. Mais les possibilités ouvertes aux personnes invalides ont été considérablement transformées au début du XXe siècle, par le droit et le travail, à partir de la Première Guerre mondiale.
C'est alors qu'a été affirmée la compatibilité de l'invalidité et de l'exercice d'un travail, alors que, depuis la fin du Moyen Âge, l'invalidité se définissait par l'inaptitude au travail. La notion de handicap est née à partir de cette idée d'un emploi possible des personnes invalides, grâce à leur réadaptation, c'est-à-dire à leur rééducation physique et professionnelle.
Suivre cette histoire permet de comprendre comment, à partir de ce droit au travail, en tant que celui-ci va de pair avec un droit à une assistance inconditionnée, les personnes handicapées ont pu desserrer l'étau de la survie et de l'urgence dans lequel leurs existences avaient été jusque-là prises, en dehors des secours des familles et de la charité.
Les normes médico-sociales de réadaptation sont ainsi exemplaires non pas de la toute-puissance de certains systèmes et de certaines exigences biopolitiques, mais de la fragilité et des limites des normes, en concurrence et traversées de tensions internes.
Comprendre leur histoire, leurs valeurs directrices et leurs articulations permet de mieux comprendre ce qui se joue dans le droit du travail et dans les droits humains pour les personnes handicapées.

Antoni van Leeuwenhoek et l'histoire de la microscopie

Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and his impact on the history of microscopy


14 - 15 September 2023, 09:00 - 17:00

£45 per day (£25 concessions)


Three hundred years ago the Dutch microscopist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek died. He had been
corresponding with the Royal Society for fifty years. Leeuwenhoek, born in Delft in the Netherlands in
1632, developed himself into one of the most prolific early microscopists. He made his own lenses
and small hand-held microscopes which were more versatile than most other devices at the time.
With these instruments and his outstanding preparation and observation techniques, he was the first
to see and describe red blood cells, bacteria and many other things.
In this conference we will take a close look at Leeuwenhoek’s seventeenth- and eighteenth-century
microscopic practices as well as the development of the field of microscopy from his death to the
twenty-first century. We will show how Leeuwenhoek was working as part of a large European
network of scientists exploring the natural world with microscopes. The papers in this conference will
make clear that microscopic practices and the way in which scientists communicated their findings to
each other started in Leeuwenhoek’s time and are still used today.
Conference organisers: Dr Sietske Fransen, Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art
History; Drs Tiemen Cocquyt, Rijksmuseum Boerhaave; Professor Dr Eric Jorink, Leiden University &
Huygens Instituut.

La production de la connaissance scientifique et médicale

Scientific and Medical Knowledge Production, 1796-1918. Volume I: Curiosity 

Edited By Rob Boddice

May 31, 2023
306 Pages
ISBN 9780367443740

This volume is divided according to moral themes within medicine and science. The sources represent dominant notes within the culture of knowledge production that capture the moral/emotional/social justification for the making of expertise through experiment. This volume focuses on curiosity, given as the scientist’s chief motivating factor for the finding of new facts, and as an essential character trait for anyone entering the scientific life. It is also the source of controversy and criticism, since curiosity alone increasingly looked amoral at best and immoral at worst, as the nineteenth century wore on.

Le corps et les lettres au XVIIIe siècle

Letters and the Body, 1700–1830. Writing and Embodiment

Edited by Sarah Goldsmith, Sheryllynne Haggerty, Karen Harvey


Edition 1st Edition
First Published July 2023
Pub. Location New York
Imprint Routledge

This collection explores the multifaceted relationship between letters and bodies in the long eighteenth century, featuring a broad selection of women and men’s letters in Britain, North America and the Caribbean, from the labouring poor to the landed elite.

In eleven chapters, scholars from various disciplines draw on different methodological approaches that include close readings of single letters, social historical analyses of large corpora and a material culture approach to the object of the letter. This research includes personal letters exchanged among family and friends, formal correspondence and letters that were incorporated into published forewords and appendices, journals and memoirs. Section 1 explores the letter as a substitute for the absent body, the imagined physical encounters and performances envisaged by letter writers and the means through which these imagined sensations were conveyed. Section 2 examines the letter as a material object that served as a conduit for descriptions of the material body and as an instrument for embodied encounters. Section 3 focuses on how correspondents purposefully used their bodies in letters as a means to create intimacy, to generate social networks and build a ‘body politic’.

This interdisciplinary volume centred around letters will be of interest to scholars and students in a variety of fields including eighteenth-century studies, cultural history and literature.
