George Campbell Gosling is a social, cultural and political historian of modern Britain. His work primarily uses the themes of medicine, charity and welfare to explore wider questions of gender, citizenship and consumerism.
He joined the University of Wolverhampton in 2017, having previously held teaching and research posts at City, University of London, Warwick University, King's College London, Oxford Brookes University and the University of Liverpool.
His most recent book, ‘Payment and Philanthropy in British Healthcare, 1918-48’, was published by Manchester University Press in 2017. It explores the complex meanings of payment in the pre-NHS hospital, arguing that when patient payments became commonplace after the First World War they found a surprisingly traditional accommodation with long-established class-bound principles of philanthropy.
You'll find him online on twitter and at his own his own Musings site, where his regular blog includes a popular series of 'advice to students' study skills posts.
