Anna Greenwood is Associate Professor in History at the University of Nottingham, previously she was Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham, Ningbo China and Assistant Professor at the University of Exeter and the University of Strathclyde. The author of 2 monographs, an edited collection and several journal articles, Anna also sits on the Executive Board of the Society for the Social History of Medicine and is an active member of the AHRC peer-review college.
As a medical historian, Anna is interested in a the history of Western medicine in the British Empire, particularly the histories of doctors who worked in British East Africa and European psychiatric responses to the tropical world. Bringing her attention closer to home, most recently, Anna has become involved with the local medical history of the East Midlands; particularly the history of Boots the chemists. This latter project has led to an interest in the way that this company has become embedded in the historical fabric of the region.
Anna has worked with local schools to examine the way history contributes to regional identity and using engagement sessions to raise aspirations in young people. Educated at UCL and Cambridge, Anna works closely with Professor Paul Crawford at Nottingham in promoting the local and international reach of the Health Humanities.
