Speaker information

Tom Treasure

With the ever present potential for surgical performance to be destructive as well as constructive or reconstructive, surgery has always been one of the most visible and effecting examples of medical change and innovation.

This seminar series is strongly intended to facilitate a wide breadth of methodologies, the aim being to move away from the polarisation between 'social' and 'technical' discourses of surgery which have tended to dominate its historiography. Instead, the objective is to seek more productive ways through which historians of surgery can engage with one another and explore what has been and what could be in surgery and surgical history.
