The U of T Health History Partnership is currently focusing its efforts on supporting, cataloguing, and exhibiting the University’s health-related artifact collections. An online catalogue is currently under development.
The Public’s Health: A symposium on public health histories
THE THINGS WE KEEP: A MATERIAL HISTORY OF TORONTO’S PUBLIC HEALTH
The artefacts that come down to us from the past are more than keepsakes; they are material documents of past people and communities. They can, if we consider them carefully, give us new ways of understanding the past and new approaches to familiar stories. The history of public health, a vast topic touching many aspects of society and culture, can be appreciated through the variety of objects that survive.
