A reminder that the deadline for paper, panel, and poster proposals is 1 January 2014.
The Society for the Social History of Medicine hosts a major, biennial, international, and interdisciplinary conference.  In 2014 it will explore the relationships between health, disease, and the state.  The biennial conference is not exclusive in terms of its theme, and reflects the broad diversity of the discipline of the social history of medicine.  The 2014 committee encourages proposals for posters, papers, sessions, and round-tables that examine, challenge, and refine the history of disease, health and the state. Suggested themes include local and global understandings of health, medicine, and governance; the consolidation, breakdown, or absence of state power in the midst of health and medical crises; and the experience of health and medical bureaucracies in the past.
