Welcome to follow our research project Experiencing Agony – Pain and Embodiment in the British Atlantic World, 1600–1900!

Pain is born out of a combination of cultural, social, and individual factors. It has not had the same significance for all people in all times at all places.

This project explores the experiences of pain in the British Atlantic World in 1600th–1900th centuries. Here, you can get to know the project, its people, and its latest news.
