Children of Craig-Y-Nos: History of Medicine in Wales

15 September 2021

Scene from Children of Craig-y-nos

Did you see the ITV Wales programme, "Children of Craig-Y-Nos"?

It's about tuberculosis and the history of medicine in Wales. It included Dr Carole Reeves, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Science and Technology Studies. Carole is an expert in history of medicine. She also is an expert in communicating history of science, technology, and medicine.

Some former STS students will remember Carole played an important part in STS's recent history. She created modules in STS, such as 'Science and Film Production'. For many years she also taught highly popular modules in STS associated with history of medicine.

Retired from UCL, Carole remains impressively busy. Some of her work in the past year includes:
