11th Meeting of the Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine

October 25-26, 2013, Harvard History of Science and MIT-STS

Harvard History of Science and MIT-STS are pleased to announce the 11th annual meeting of the Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine, which will take place on October 25-26 in Cambridge, MA and is seeking abstracts. This is the only annual conference run by and for graduate students in the history of medicine and related fields.

The conference theme this year will be “Innovating the History of Medicine.” The field is vibrant, bringing rigorous historical analysis to urgent questions in health care and the health sciences. But as questions evolve, sources diversify, disciplinary boundaries waver and dissolve, and global sites become ever more accessible, it is an ideal moment to engage in collective imagining about the future of the history of medicine.
