Livros, leituras e circulação de saberes nas teses médicas sobre a epidemia de cólera da Faculdade de Medicina do Rio de Janeiro (C. 1855): notas preliminares de pesquisa
It proposes a discussion on the production of medical theses submitted to the Faculty of Medicine of Rio de Janeiro (FMRJ) who lectured about the cholera-morbus at the time the epidemic arrived in Brazil (c.1855). The goal is to understand the influence of certain foreign authors, lenses of faculty, medical paradigms, besides the canons imposed for making the final course work of ‘doctoral students’. These looks bring together some questions as to the ‘history of reading and the book’ which, only recently, have been thought by historians that focus on the ‘medical book’. This particularly for forms of ‘circulation’ of medical knowledge for the production of the final course of the doctoral FMRJ work in the context of the arrival of the cholera epidemic to the Empire.
