Mass schooling and public health
The history of how schools operated as spaces for the dissemination of public health information and as clinics for the administration of public health interventions is important yet under-researched, with insights fragmented across a number of fields of enquiry, rather than brought together into a cohesive body, where connections might be made. This ebook aims to contribute to a richer understanding of how schools in different parts of the world addressed public health at different historical periods over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The three themes addressed within and across the papers, addressing clinical practices, children’s bodies, and politics encourage new points of connection between hitherto disparate fields of historical enquiry—histories of public health, histories of childhood and histories of education.
