Medizin, Gesellschaft und Geschichte
Yearbook & supplement series
A unique forum in the German-speaking world for interdisciplinary approaches, the common core of which is a wide-ranging social history of medicine, which also includes alternative healing methods: The studies examine historical aspects of health and disease from a variety of different perspectives. Over and above the history of medicine, pharmacy and science, Medizin, Gesellschaft und Geschichte also includes contributions from the cultural sciences and sociology to art history.
Medizin, Gesellschaft und Geschichte originated in 1991 with the decision to develop the former yearbook of the Institute for the History of Medicine of the Robert Bosch Stiftung into a programmatic journal. With the same thematic diversity, supplements with monographs and multi-authored volumes are also published.
