Introduction – Ann Carmichael

I am an historian of medicine and infectious diseases currently finishing a monograph on morbidity and mortality in Sforza-era Milan. While I have written article-length studies involving analysis of fourteenth-century texts and the Black Death, my principal inquiry involves analysis of early civic mortality registers. Secondarily, I am concerned with how we can connect plague experience to general Renaissance political and social history. Because my original training was in medicine, I have long worked on interdisciplinary topics pertinent to this site, but in a slightly later historical period. I focus on urban plague experience and use archival sources.
