MONCKTON COPEMAN LECTURE

 Title: “Death by Water: Rethinking John Snow and Cholera'”

 Speaker: Dr Richard Barnett

 

Richard Barnett is a writer, teacher and broadcaster on the cultural history of science and medicine. He studied medicine in London before becoming a historian, and teaches the cultural histories of disease and evolutionary theory at Pembroke College, Cambridge. In 2011 he received one of the first Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellowships. He writes regularly for the Lancet, and has made many appearances on British and American TV & radio. His first book, Medical London: City of Diseases: City of Cures, was a Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4, and his The Sick Rose was described by Will Self in the Guardian as 'superbly lucid and erudite'. His latest book, Crucial Interventions: An Illustrated Treatise on the Principles and Practice of Nineteenth-Century Surgery, is out now. Find him online at richardbarnettwriter.com
