Kathryn Foxhall

Katherine Foxhall, Ph. D.

Social and medical historian Katherine Foxhall earned her PhD from the University of Warwick, UK. She has published and lectured on a wide range of topics in medical history, and is the author of Migraine: A History, to be published in Spring 2019 by Johns Hopkins University Press.

In this talk, historian Katherine Foxhall reveals how ordinary people and medical professionals have described, explained, and treated migraine for over a thousand years. Foxhall argues that our current knowledge of migraine is founded on a centuries-long social, cultural, and medical history that continues to profoundly shape our knowledge and attitudes towards the disease, the people who have migraine, our treatment of pain.
