American Association for the History of Medicine 80th Annual Meeting Montreal, Quebec May 3-6, 2007

Call for Papers

The American Association for the History of Medicine invites abstracts for papers in any area of medical history for its 80th annual meeting, to be held in Montreal, Quebec, 3-6 May 2007. The Association welcomes submissions on the history of health and healing; history of medical ideas, practices, and institutions; and histories of illness, disease, and public health. Submissions from all eras and regions of the world are welcome. Besides single-paper proposals, the program committee accepts abstracts for three-paper sessions and for luncheon workshops. Please alert the Program Committee chair ([email protected]) if you are planning a session proposal. Individual papers for these submissions will be judged on their own merits. When making an historical argument state the major claim, summarize the evidence supporting it, and state the major conclusion(s). When proposing a narrative, summarize the story, identify the major agents, and specify the conflict.

The AAHM uses an online abstract submissions system. It is located at Abstracts–none longer than 350 words–must be received by 15 September 2006. E-mail or faxed proposals are not acceptable.

Presentations are limited to 20 minutes. Individuals wishing to present a paper must attend the meeting. All papers must represent original work not already published or in press. Because the Bulletin of the History of Medicine is the official journal of the AAHM, the Association encourages speakers to make their manuscripts available for consideration by the Bulletin.
