The Lothian Health Services Archive and Creative Writing

Wed 13 November 2019 14:00-15:30

Centre for Research Collections Teaching Room, 6th Floor, Main Library

 

This event is hosted by the University's Museums team.

 

Lothian Health Services Archive holds a range of fascinating material relating to the treatment of mental health in the 19th century including clinical case notes and patient letters.

 

Join us to read and discover records from the Royal Edinburgh Hospital and, at the same time, learn a new skill as we’ll be trying out some creative writing exercises in response to these. No experience necessary, all are welcome!
