The management of air through and around medical buildings has been of concern since the Romans located their hospital on an island in the River Tiber.

In the fourth session of our seminar series on Spaces of Sickness and Wellbeing, Alistair Fair brings together eminent scholars addressing this topic that has become central to our lives in 2020-21.

Papers will discuss: the history of infection control; airborne infection transmission; air & infection in the C19th and waterbath modelling of air in hospital wards.
