Civil War Medicine: Making Sense of Suffering, Feb. 12

Susan Lawrence, professor in the UT Department of History, will present “Civil War Medicine: Making Sense of Suffering,” Friday, February 12 via Zoom.

Everyone knows that soldiers massively suffered from diseases, injuries, and deaths during the American Civil War. How did doctors try to make some sense out of their experiences with the men they cared for? Professor Lawrence will explore this question from the perspective of mid-19th century medical and surgical concerns.

The UT Science Forum takes place via Zoom Friday, February 12 from noon to 1 p.m.
