“Beyond Borders: Health and Medicine in Historical Context”

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 the major theme of our conference. We welcome papers and panels from all areas of the history of health and medicine, including health systems, public health, indigenous health, mental health, biography, hospital history and nursing history. We also welcome papers/panels relating to medical museums.
