Philanthropic and charitable practices in hospitals: Brazil and England in contemporary era


The following activities are expected to be performed:1. Joint reading of the documentation collected in London and available in Brazil. Comparison of such documentation with the results of reading the documentation of the Mercy of São Paulo (English tables made by me will be presented to the Professor, who does not read Portuguese). Establishment of convergence and differentiation elements.2. Establishment of comparative landmarks between England and Brazil from research done by the proponent and the visitor between the 19th and 20th centuries. We are considering, in principle, the years 1820, 1890, 1950 and 1990, as they seem to indicate inflections in the conjunctures of the two countries with regard to health care and charity and philanthropy rules.3. Meeting of Professor Martin Gorsky with my study group, "History and Historiography of Public Health" (linked to the Unifesp Center for Iberian Studies), and the study group coordinated by Professor André Mota (FMUSP), "Salus - Study Group on the History of Medical and Health Practice ". We have been working together for some years and our studies have been guided by the understanding of public health in the contemporary world in its many aspects, highlighting the public policies and the discourses and laws produced from the experience of specific social actors and institutions.4. Two lectures by Professor Martins Gorsky. The first, focused on Unifesp's postgraduate programs that focus on the subjects discussed here, is entitled The construction, funding and management of the public and private hospital system in Britain. The second, aimed at the general Unifespian community called The National Health Service in Britain: The History of Its Origins, Establishment and Development. Simultaneous translation is the responsibility of the tenderer. (AU)
