Journal Publishes Article by Rutgers-Camden Medical Historian

In her article “‘Modern Medical Science and the Divine Providence of God’: Rethinking the Place of Religion in Postwar U.S. Medical History,” Rutgers-Camden medical historian Janet Golden discusses how many parents who experienced the death of children during the postwar period relied heavily on religion to help make sense of the tragedies medicine could not prevent.

The article has been selected for publication in the Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences.

Golden, a professor of history, specializes in the history of medicine, history of childhood, women’s history and American social history.  She is the author or editor of nine books, and the author or co-author numerous peer-reviewed articles.
