Call for Papers. Environment Health & History Conference of the European Association for the History of Medicine and Health

LSHTM, 12-15th September 2007 Conference Location: Brunei Gallery, Bloomsbury, London.

Keynote Speakers: Professor Chris Hamlin, Notre Dame University, Indiana. Professor Dieter Schott, Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. Professor Chris Sellers, State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Increasingly historians of medicine and of science have begun to seek common ground with environmental historians and with geographers studying the material, cultural and social relations embedded in place. A lively dialogue between different methodologies and approaches is under way.

This conference seeks papers on a wide range of topics across all time periods and disciplines, with national, cross national and international dimensions. It is hoped through such exchange to discuss and develop ways of approaching the interface between environment and health in ways which are sensitive to the past but also speak to present day concerns.

Title and abstract to be received by the end of November 2006.
