History Unlimited Seminar Series – University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian

November 26, 2015-March 31, 2016

Call for papers

This academic year the universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian will once again be hosting the History Unlimited seminar series with the support of the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH). Since its formation in 2005, the CSHHH has worked collaboratively with academics from both the universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian. Members of both institutions have focused on the ways in which medicine, medical science and healthcare systems have developed over time and have come to shape contemporary experience. History Unlimited aims to provide a platform for junior scholars in the history of medicine, health and healthcare. The institutions invite PhD students, early career Post-Docs and non-tenured faculty staff across all the humanities and social sciences to provide an interdisciplinary focus on the history of medicine. The main intention of the series is to broaden the international network of junior scholars in this field. However, they also offer the opportunity for researchers to present their work, practice their presentation skills and receive a constructive critique in a like-minded community. This series will run four seminars between November 2015 and May 2014. Each seminar will consist of three twenty minute papers with questions and feedback on content and style. The institutions invite abstracts of 250 words from all researchers working within humanities and social sciences. Topics to be discussed include but are not limited to: – Military Medicine – The History of Alcohol and Narcotics – Psychiatry and Pharmaceuticals – Childhood, Health and Healthcare – The History of Domestic and International Drug Policy It is important to note that these categories cover only a small range of the possible topics for discussion and we welcome any ideas from all disciplines which relate to the history of medicine, health and healthcare. Abstracts of 250 words, together with contact details, should be sent to: historyunlimited@gmail.com by October 31st. Please Note: We have limited funding available for the series, however we may be able to meet some costs on a case by case basis. For further details please include questions in the abstract application email. Seminar Dates are as follows: 26/11/2015 – 28/01/2016 – 25/02/2016 – 31/03/2016
