Gendered drugs and medicine : historical and socio-cultural perspectives by Teresa Ortiz( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drugs are considered to be healers and harmers, wonder substances and knowledge makers; objects that impact on social hierarchies, health practices and public policies. This book focuses on the ways that gender, race/ethnicity and class, influence the design, standardisation and circulation of drugs throughout several highly medicalised countries. Seventeen authors from eight different countries, both European and non-European, analyse the extent to which the dominant ideas and values surrounding masculinity and femininity shape the research, prescription and use of drugs by women and/or men w
The circulation of penicillin in Spain : health, wealth and authority by María Jesús Santesmases( )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and Spanish and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reconstructs the early circulation of penicillin in Spain, a country exhausted by civil war (1936<U+0013>1939), and oppressed by Franco<U+0019>s dictatorship. Embedded in the post-war recovery, penicillin<U+0019>s voyages through time and across geographies <U+0013> professional, political and social <U+0013> were both material and symbolic. This powerful antimicrobial captivated the imagination of the general public, medical practice, science and industry, creating high expectations among patients, who at times experienced little or no effect. Penicillin<U+0019>s lack of efficacy against some microbes fueled the search for new wonder drugs and sustained a decades-long research agenda built on the post-war concept of development through scientific and technological achievements. This historical reconstruction of the social life of penicillin between the 1940s and 1980s <U+0013> through the dictatorship to democratic transition <U+0013> explores political, public, medical, experimental and gender issues, and the rise of antibiotic resistance

Circulating biomedical images: Bodies and chromosomes in the post-eugenic era( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This essay presents the early days of human cytogenetics, from the late 1950s until the mid 1970s, as a historical series of images. I propose a chronology moving from photographs of bodies to chromosome sets, to be joined by ultrasound images, which provided a return to bodies, by then focused on the unborn. Images carried ontological significance and, as I will argue, are principal characters in the history of human cytogenetics. Inspired by the historiography of heredity and genetics, studies on visual cultures, the conceptualization of circulation, and the sociology of pregnancy, I suggest that cytogenetics, through its focus on pregnancy, pregnant women, and their offspring, found strategic living materials that stabilized human chromosome studies as a biomedical, post-eugenics practice. The historicity of each path displays a wide circulation of objects, tools, and methods that condensed on images that shared in the centuries-old visual expertise that medicine and botany had manufactured
