Beyond Borders: Health and Medicine in Historical Context: Australian and New Zealand Society of the History of Medicine Biennial Conference 2019

December 3-7, 2019, Auckland, New Zealand

Call for Papers opens January 2019 and closes 31 May 2019

This conference is located in Auckland, New Zealand. Whilst New Zealand is far removed geographically from the epicentre of many significant past medical developments, we believe it is important to view the history of health and medicine in a broad international perspective, with ideas and systems taking on different forms in different contexts. It is this intersection between the local and international which will form a major theme of our conference.

This biennial conference is not exclusive in terms of its themes, and aims to reflect the diversity of the discipline of the history of health and medicine. We welcome papers from all areas of that history, including health systems, public health, indigenous health, mental health, biography, hospital history and nursing history. We also welcome papers/panels relating to medical museums/exhibitions.

Submissions from scholars across the range of career stages are welcome, especially those from postgraduate and early career researchers. We offer competitive travel grants to postgraduate students to attend the conference.

Please see our conference website for further details.

Contact Prof. Linda Bryder at with questions.
