Religion, Health and Welfare since 1800: Workshop, 25-26 October 2012
Historically, religious groups have played a key role in the provision of health and welfare services. This workshop plans to explore the role played by different religious groups as health and welfare providers and the services they offered. This will allow speakers to examine the different roles and motivations of religious groups and the services they provided, and to seek parallels or comparisons within and across countries, between religious groups or in terms of their role within the mixed economy of welfare in any given location.
The workshop is funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Economic History Society and hosted by the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH), a research collaboration between health historians at Glasgow Caledonian University and Strathclyde University.
