Submissions are open!
We welcome papers on all aspects of the history of health and medicine, including health systems, public health, indigenous health, mental health, biography, hospital history, nursing history, medical heritage and museums.
The Programme Committee seeks three kinds of submissions:
1) Individual papers: These will be presentations of no more than 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Papers must represent original work not already published or in press. Authors wishing to publish their papers following the conference are encouraged to submit them for consideration to Health & History.
2) Panels: These consist of 3-4 individual papers featuring original scholarship (with each paper generally 20 minutes) addressing a common topic. An appointed moderator should submit a proposal for the entire panel and coordinate individual speakers. Each speaker should submit an individual abstract indicating which panel it is part of. Please note that both panels and the individual abstracts for panel papers will be judged on their own merits.
3) Posters: These must represent original work not already published or in press. They will be displayed at planned times during the conference, for the presenters to discuss with viewers. Posters should be in A1 format.
We will only accept one submission per person. Submissions must include an abstract (of no more than 250 words) with title, your name and institutional affiliation, three key words that describe your proposed paper, and a short biography (maximum 50 words).
Ben Haneman Grants are available for Postgraduate students who have proposals accepted for presentation at the conference. Details of the awards are on the Society website. Students must join the Society to be eligible.
Submissions close 31 May 2019. You will be informed by 31 July whether your abstract has been accepted.
