CFP: Canadian Society for the History of Medicine

May 28-30, 2016, University of Calgary

Call for papers

Building on the Congress for the Social Science and Humanities’ theme of “Energizing Communities” and the Canadian Historical Association’s focus this year on stories, the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine is issuing a call for papers on the theme of networks, communities and storytelling, for its annual meeting, to be held in conjunction with the Congress, at the University of Calgary, May 28 to 30, 2016. Reflecting on this theme in medical history offers an opportunity for scholars to consider global, national and regional pathways in the flow of medical knowledge, the place of community-based health care and research, and the stories we tell about disease, recovery, interventions and infrastructure in the history of health care in Canada and beyond. Abstracts on other topics are also welcome.

Please submit your abstract and one-page C.V. for consideration by 30 November 2015 by e-mail to Mary-Ellen Kelm, kelm@sfu.ca. Abstracts must not exceed 350 words. Submissions for panels are also welcome, but abstracts and one-page c.v.s for each presenter in the panel are required. The Committee will notify applicants of its decision by 30 January 2016. If invited to present at the meeting, the author must undertake to provide a translation of the abstract for the bilingual program book.

Deadline: November 30, 2015
