There has been a long relationship between television and medicine: some of the small screen’s most popular shows, on both sides of the Atlantic, have been medical in focus, from hospital-set dramas like ER to reality TV shows and docudramas like One Born Every Minute. This fascination with doctors, hospitals and bodies is also shared by period drama television, but scholarship has paid little attention to this intersection/relationship.

Trash Objects


The defining qualities of trash can change from moment to moment.  Who gets to discard detritus, and who is thrown into to the garbage can?

Re-Visions of Eden: The Idea of the Midwestern Gothic
