This event has been rescheduled from the 13 December 2022
£70/£35 (student ticket)
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 Bartholomew’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 from 11am to 5pm and will be led by Ann-Marie Akehurst. Tickets include a buffet lunch and reception. A limited number of student tickets are available here.
