The American Association for the History of Medicine (AAHM) has issued a call for papers in any area of the history of health and healing for its 96th annual meeting, to be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, May 11-14, 2023.
“The AAHM welcomes papers on the histories of medicine, disease, and health broadly defined, including the history of medical ideas, practices, institutions, and technologies; the history of healing, disability, illness, disease, pharmaceuticals, and public health; and the history of peoples’ experiences of health, illness, and disability. We welcome proposals related to all eras and regions of the world that engage with biomedical and non-biomedical therapeutic systems and traditions.
The Program Committee is led by co-chairs David Herzberg and Sarah Rodriguez, and encourages the submission of papers that build connections between the history of medicine and related fields and disciplines; that expand the methodological, thematic, chronological, and geographic diversity of the history of medicine; and that address the role of medicine in reinforcing and challenging social hierarchies of race, gender, empire/nation, ability, etc.”
Abstracts must be submitted to AAHM by midnight, Pacific Time (US), October 10, 2022.
For further detail regarding submissions for individual papers, panels, lunch workshops and posters, please see the AAHM notice.
