Living Heritage Podcast Ep188 Venereal Disease in the First World War

Today on the Living Heritage podcast, we are in conversation with Allison Bennett, a Ph.D. Candidate at Memorial University. Her research investigates the soldiers of the British Army who contracted venereal diseases while serving in the Middle East during the First World War.  Her research interests include War and Society; Gender History; and the History of Medicine. We talk prophylactics, prostitution, and recent pandemics!


Living Heritage is about people who are engaged in the heritage and culture sector, from museum professionals and archivists, to tradition bearers and craftspeople - all those who keep history alive at the
community level. The show is a partnership between HeritageNL and CHMR Radio.
Theme music is Rythme Gitan by Latché Swing.
