This blog site will act as digital hub for a new research group on ‘Testing Drugs and Trying Cures in the pre-modern World’. The working currently consists of 14 scholars working in higher education institutions in Europe and North America. The group aims to investigate processes of trial and experimentation on drugs and cures in the pre-modern period. The blog site will enable researchers to exchange ideas about research and provide updates on their individual projects. It will also foster conversations between members of the research network and host a bibliography/e-folder of readings.
