Dr. Janet Golden, Professor of History, recently wrote an article titled “‘Modern Medical Science and the Divine Providence of God’: Rethinking the Place of Religion in Postwar U.S. Medical History,” which examines 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.
