Judith Lockhart

Welcome to the ePortfolio of Judith Lockhart.

I am in the final year of a part-time 5 year PhD in History at the University of Warwick. My thesis examines the social history of a Voluntary Hospital - Title 'The Birmingham and Midland Hospital for Women, 1871-1948. The social history of a voluntary hospital'.

During my period of study I have presented papers at the University of Worcester, University of Warwick and the University of Birmingham

A recently published essay: Judith Lockhart, 'Truly, a Hospital for Women': The Birmingham and Midland Hospital for Women, 1871-1901., in J. Reinarz (ed) Medicine and Society in the Midlands 1750-1950, Midland History Occasional Publications, 2007 looks at some aspects of the early history of the hospital. In particular, the essay explores the role of women, both as lay governors and as members of the medical staff. The thesis develops this theme and also explores the motives of those who founded the hospital and guided its further development into a comprehensive framework of institutions 'The Birmingham and Midland Hospitals Incorported', which collectively provided a holistic pattern of healthcare for women.

If you have a particular interest in me, my work and my plans, you are welcome to contact me for more information.
