Records reconstructing the history of sickness presented internationally

Published: 22 April 2011 Origin:  Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology

Professor Bernard Harris in April gave presentations based on a long-running project on the history of sickness to audiences in Madrid and Barcelona.

This project uses the records of an organisation called the Hampshire Friendly Society to reconstruct the sickness histories of more than 5000 men over the period 1825-1981. Some of the results will appear in academic journals later this year.
