Call for Speakers: Colloquium on the History of Psychiatry and Medicine

May 31, 2014, Havard Medical School

We would like your suggestions of topics and speakers for the Colloquium on the History of Psychiatry and Medicine in the fall of 2014

The Colloquium is sponsored by the Center for the History of Medicine, Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and the McLean Hospital Department of Postgraduate and Continuing Education.  It offers an opportunity for researchers in the history of psychiatry, medicine, and science to present informally, including work in progress, to a small group of clinicians, researchers, and others interested in the historical context of their work. While we are unable to fund an honorarium we can defray modest travel epenses.  We do offer an informal setting where work in progress can be offered and receive constructive contributions, rather than the formal presentation of a polished paper.  The discussion is usually lively and the audience appreciative.

The Colloquium is usually held from 4:00 to 5:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month in the fall at the Harvard Medical School. It consists of 45-60 minute presentation followed by 30-45 minutes of discussion.

Please let me know of speakers and topics you think would be interesting for the Colloquium and who would be interested in presenting in the Colloquium.
