Absences, Notches

As my (rather longer than intended) silence may have suggested, I’ve been having a busy time recently. I’ve got some posts in the pipeline, but in the meantime here’s a link to a piece of mine on ‘Sores, Scorn and Stigma? Suffering Syphilis in Early Modern Germany’ which was published on the wonderful Notches blog as part of their series on venereal diseases:  http://notchesblog.com/2016/03/22/sores-scorn-and-stigma-suffering-syphilis-in-early-modern-germany/ .

P.S. If you’ve not already encountered it Notches is a great blog on all aspects of the history of sexuality – definitely worth following!
