Medical Education in a 'provincial' context: Manchester, 1750-1850
Alice Marples, Research Associate.
Alice’s research focuses largely on the Manchester Medical Manuscripts Collection, which consists of over 250 unique manuscripts compiled or collected by some of Manchester’s leading doctors of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, including John Hull, Joseph Jordan, Charles Clay, John Windsor and Thomas Radford. She is using the manuscripts to explore the development of education in Manchester between 1750 and 1850, exploring processes of professionalisation alongside 'provincial Enlightenment'.
Alice’s research is generously funded by a philanthropic donation.
