Anna Greenwood 1

Anna is Professor of Health History at the University of Nottingham. Her work focuses on the connections between British and global histories of health in the context of the British Empire. Recently, her research on Florence Nightingale and on colonial doctors have illustrated the interconnections between local history and international and colonial projects, particularly in the shaping of mindsets and policies. Her previous books include Practicing Colonial Medicine (I.B. Tauris, 2007), Doctors in Kenya: The Forgotten Story, 1985-1940 with Harshad Topiwala (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) and Florence Nightingale at Home (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020) with Paul Crawford, Richard Bates and Jonathan Memel. She has a burgeoning interest in the history of unhealthy sport sponsorship that she hopes to develop in the coming years.
