Author, researcher and cultural historian from Birkbeck College, Dr Carmen Mangion will discuss how the Victorians discerned a 'good death' and a 'bad death', with visual aids of death in the nineteenth-century. Dr Mangion will be addressing chronic illness, suicide, dissection and the roles of pain and the hospital; comparing our views on them now, to those of the Victorian era.
