Fashionable diseases: medicine, literature and culture, c.1660-1832

This project aims to provide a more comprehensive understanding of how in the 18th century conditions such as consumption (tuberculosis), indigestion, dyspepsia, melancholy and gout were invested with a positive cultural cachet at the same as they were likely to be (negatively) seen as "fashionable". This cultural and medical phenomenon is still little understood. Besides examining the critical period of the 18th century, the team hopes to break new ground in actively seeking to extend its analysis to diseases of today. By better understanding the historical context, we might be able to manage better the definition, treatment and diagnosis of today's diseases.
