CFA: Joint Atlantic Seminar in the History of Medicine

October 3-4, 2014, Baltimore, MD, United States

The 12th Annual Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine will be held the weekend of October 3-4, 2014. It will be hosted by the History of Medicine Department at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The seminar is organized and coordinated by graduate students working in fields related to the history of medicine. Our mission is to foster a sense of community and provide a forum for sharing and critiquing graduate research by peers from a variety of institutions, disciplines, and backgrounds.

Call for papers


Graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for research presentations on topics related to the history of health and healing; medical ideas, practices, and institutions; illness, disease and bodies, from all eras and regions of the world. A panel of graduate students from different institutions will review the abstracts.

All abstracts should be no more than 250 words and can be submitted at

We urge students whose papers are accepted to seek financial support from their home institutions to participate in the seminar. We hope that a limited amount of travel support will be made available to students whose home departments are not able to subsidize travel; however, we are uncertain as to the extent and availability of such funding at this time. Registration for the conference is free.
