This fourth volume from the Warwick Series in the Humanities focuses on the medical humanities and the ‘long nineteenth century’, and aims to ‘picture many women, types of (ill) health, social contexts and sources’ (p. 9). In the introduction, the trope of the picture is used to explain and unify the collection’s focus on cultural representations. The editors outline the varied ways in which authors ‘frame’ their subjects, drawing on theories of visual representation, creation and consumption, and depictions in medical photography, travel writing, the novel and student magazines.
