Tele(visualising) Health: TV, Public Health, its Enthusiasts and its Publics
Televisions began to appear in the homes of large numbers of the public in Europe and

North America after World War II. This coincided with a period in which ideas about the public’s health, the problems that it faced and the solutions that could be offered, were changing. The threat posed by infectious diseases was receding, to be replaced by chronic conditions linked to lifestyle and individual behaviour. Public health professionals were enthusiastic about how this new technology and mass advertising could reach out to individuals in the population with the new message about lifestyle and risk. TV offered a way to reach large numbers of people with public health messages; it symbolised the post war optimism about new directions in public health. But it could also act as a contributory factor to those new public health problems. Watching TV was part of a shift towards more sedentary lifestyles, and also a vehicle through which products that were damaging to health, such as alcohol, cigarettes and unhealthy food, could be advertised to the public. Population health problems could be worsened by TV viewing. How should we understand the relationship between TV and public health? What are the key changes and continuities over time and place? How does thinking about the relationship between public health and TV change our understanding of both? In this three-day conference, we seek to explore questions such as:

  • How did the enthusiasm develop for TV within public health?
  • How were shifts in public health, problems, policies and practices represented on TV?
  • How was TV used to improve or hinder public health?
  • What aspects of public health were represented on TV, and what were not?
  • How did the public respond to health messages on TV?
  • What were the perceived limitations of TV as a mass medium for public health?
  • In what way was TV different from other forms of mass media in relation to public health?
  • How were institutions concerned with the public’s health present – and staged – on TV broadcasts?

The conference aims to bring together scholars from different fields (such as, but not limited to, history, history of science, history of medicine, communication, media and film studies, television studies) working on the history of television in Great Britain, France and Germany (West and East) (the focus of the ERC BodyCapital project), but also other European

countries, North and South America, Russia, Asia or other countries and areas.

The digital platform of teaching and research MedFilm is a collaborative initiative accommodated by the University of Strasbourg.

Every person who wishes to participate in the constitution of the database, in the location of medical and sanitary utilitarian movies or the writing of notes about movies is invited to contact us at: MedFilm ( at ) unistra.fr. The information contained on the platform MedFilm is validated in an academic way before their publication by the editorial persons in charge of MedFilm.

Final programme BodyCapital to the Internet.pdf
From body capital to the Internet. New media, new modes of representation, new uses
ERC BodyCapital is a research project centred on audio-visual representations of the body in the twentieth century, up to the birth of YouTube in 2005. BodyCapital considers the birth of the Internet as the point at which film and television were succeeded as modes of mass communication, wherein a new space for democratised content and new forms of expression and sociability was created and developed. The Internet has foregrounded both the broad potential of multimedia and the logic of networking practices for the mass audience. It has consequently opened up a new field of distribution within and responding to known structures (institutions, companies, traditional media) whilst reconfiguring relationships between the mass media and its publics. In this sense, Internet has established a mode of interactivity, inspiring individual initiatives through the creation of personal sites.

Workshop Excess Program final.pdf
Excess images of body, health, morality and emotions across the media
The concept of excess is ambivalent: It can signify phenomena ranging from certain religious practices to drug abuse to aspects of consumer culture; it can be an empowering self-description or a stigmatizing judgment. This openness is also reflected in a variety of closely related terms that are sometimes shared by multiple languages, such as "ecstasy," "exstase," and "Ekstase" in English, French, and German, but which might also be associated with divergent concepts like "frenzy," "ivresse," or "Rausch." The workshop seeks to analyze these facets of excess and asks how excess has been perceived and constructed in different media. It aims to explore how images of the body, health, morality and emotions varied over history, across cultures, and how the media themselves have contributed to the ways in which the concept of excess has been shaped and used.
