Sports Medicine and Immortality
|This project began in the run up to the Beijing Olympics with the conference Sports, Medicine and Immortality convened in collaboration with the Centre for Health and Human Development UEL at the British Museum. Historians, medics and sociologists explored how critical appraisal of the history of sports, body cultivation and sports medicine can contribute to our shared experience of health today.|
Articles consider the health equation of games past, present and future, the perfection and healing of body and soul and the delivery of future legacies positive in cultural regeneration, societal cohesion, health and well-being.
Participants have contributed to a volume submitted to British Museum Research Publications with a planned publication date before the London Olympics in 2012.
