The Tower Of London Becoming A Tourist Attraction In The 19th Century, Catherine Mcdonald Apr 2019

The Tower Of London Becoming A Tourist Attraction In The 19th Century, Catherine Mcdonald

Honors College

The middle class valued education and wanted to use their leisure time to further their knowledge. History in particular interested them. Popular culture reflected this change in attitude about a subject previously not looked to ...

The hospital cares for women with obstetric fistula, a condition resulting from prolonged, obstructed labor that leaves women chronically incontinent and ostracized.
