About

My name is Ryan Ross, and I am a final year PhD candidate at the Centre for the History of Emotions at Queen Mary, University of London.

Thematically, my PhD focusses on the medico-legal sequelae of traumatic accidents in 20thC Britain — that is, how doctors conceptualised, treated and diagnosed disorders like whiplash, post-concussion syndrome and the so-called ‘traumatic neurosis’. Through this, I weave a more conceptual study of time (or temporality), medicine, memory, trauma, law and the philosophy of history.

I use this blog as a space to think more self-critically about the becoming of the research-process and of the role of history in the 21stC.
