'Healthscaping Urban Europe, 1200-1500' brings together historians and archaeologists to explore how urban residents in two of Europe’s most urbanized regions – Italy and the Low Countries thought about and pursued population-level health. The project builds on insights by scholars of premodern medicine; urbanism; and material culture, which collectively challenged the identification of public health as a uniquely modern phenomenon.
The project's concluding event will take place at Amsterdam's University Library and is joined by Guy Geltner (University of Amsterdam & Monash University), Nükhet Varlik (Rutgers University) and Peregrine Horden (Royal Holloway, University of London).
