News Round Up Sunday Morning Medicine By Jacqueline Antonovich • June 8, 2014 Sharing TwitterFacebook A weekly check-up of gender, medicine, and history in the news It’s made of people!! What creates memories? What exactly is a diagnosis? On the trail of black cowboys. Mark Twain on masturbation. The history of the humble knish. The search for psychology’s lost boy. The unexpected history of a lice comb. A 1940s government comic about DDT. The gruesome art of medical illustration. What was the ultimate medieval aphrodisiac? How Jews designed the modern American home. A 1957 guide to harnessing your womanly powers. Supreme Court shifts away from “mental retardation.” Breastfeeding grandchildren in the early modern world.
That article on the search for psychology’s lost boy is so interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Without tooting my own trumpet, i have been reading a most amusing home medical journal called Vitalogy this week. It is so outdated ! I even managed to do a brief article on it for my blog. Thanks Clio !
