Dr Charlotte HolmesIndependent Researcher
I recently completed my PhD which is entitled ‘Domestic Medicine in Early Modern Scotland, c. 1650 – c. 1750’ from the University of Edinburgh. Previously, I received an MSc in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies from the University of Edinburgh and a BA in History from Georgetown University (Washington, DC USA).

Research and Teaching Interests

My research interests include the medicine in everyday early modern Scottish life, meaning that I study domestic papers and folklore to understand how medicine was carried out in the home and by whom. Recently, I have been exploring the interconnection between food and medicine in Scotland. I have also been thinking further about the role of disability in domestic care.
