Newcastle University, 24-25 August 2009

Call for Papers

Following on from the earlier conferences at Newcastle (2000, 2005 and 2007) and Reading (2001, 2003, 2006 and 2008), the next “Approaches to Ancient Medicine” conference will be held at Newcastle University on Monday and Tuesday 24-25 August 2009.

If you are interested in giving a paper at the Newcastle conference, please send an abstract of up to 200 words to me at the address below by 27 February 2009 at the latest. There is no theme, and any proposal within the broad definition of Ancient Medicine (including Egyptian and Near Eastern medicine) and its reception will be considered. It is hoped that the programme will be finalised in late March 2009.
