Guest speaker: Professor Ulf Schmidt (University of Kent)

Professor Schmidt will present research material from his forthcoming book entitled: ‘Secret Science: Human Experimentation in Chemical and Biological Warfare Research,1915-2015’. His work has looked at the history of the European eugenics and racial hygiene, especially in relation to Germany and Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries, and the history of the Nazi 'euthanasia' programme, the killing of mentally and handicapped patients during the Third Reich. He has published widely on the history of medicine during the Third Reich, the history of human experimentation, the Nuremberg Doctors' Trial and the Nuremberg Code, and the history of medical film. His work is embedded in the historiographical tradition of social and political historians, historians of medicine and medical humanities as well as scholars of cultural history and history of science.
