2020 Hocken Lecture - Hocken, Health & History: Archival and Digital Traces
1 December 2020 5:30pm — 7:30pm
You are warmly invited to the 2020 Hocken Lecture.
Changes in the way historians can access physical records and online resources has opened new opportunities for research. This lecture will explore what we can learn about the history of medicine by exploring Hocken sources with three case studies relating to childbirth in the 1870s, surgery in the 1930s and the changing attitudes to tohunga in health.
In this lecture, recently retired from University of Otago Barbara Brookes will reflect on the themes that have interested her during her career and the physical and online resources that enable an historian to explore new lines of research in new ways.
