The Birkbeck Pain Project is a two-year pilot project funded by the
Wellcome Trust. Itsets out to advance our understanding between
corporeality and culture by exploring thecomplex biomedical, neurological,
psychological, cognitive, and sensory aspects of the body in pain.Our
approach is both historical (1760s to the 1960s) and transcultural. We are
analysingnarratives of pain from diverse communities, including those
whose voices were seldomheard. These include slave populations, prisoners,
the poor, immigrant and religiousgroups, and children.This list aims to
bring together scholars working in pain studies from any
discipline,particularly in the arts, humanities and social sciences. It is
intended to provide anonline forum that encourages members to share ideas
and knowledge, and where details ofconferences, seminars and new
publications can be posted.
