Jane Stevens Crawshaw is a Renaissance Italian historian with research interests in the relationships between people and the places they inhabit.  Her current project explores the impact of developing ideas about 'cleanliness' on the public health, urban and environmental policies of Venice and Genoa.  Before this, she developed a holistic and contextualised institutional study of plague hospitals, which were first established in fifteenth-century Venice.
