Georgian Group Symposium: Architecture & Health, 1660-1830

November 3, 2022
London
UK

Following successful symposia held by the Group in previous years, on the Adam Brothers, James Gibbs, Women and Architecture, and Georgian London Revisited (online), this year’s symposium will address Architecture and Health in the long eighteenth century.

Appropriately, it will be held in James Gibbs’s Great Hall at St Bart’s, an institution celebrating its 900th anniversary.
A series of short papers by both established and younger scholars, and from a range of disciplines, will examine how and where medicine was studied and debated, how knowledge was disseminated and how healthcare was provided in what spaces and through what mechanisms.

The symposium will be held Thursday, 3 November 2022 from 10am to 5pm and will be led by Dr Ann-Marie Akehurst. It will be followed by a reception in the Great Hall.

More information can be found here or via the event website.
