CALL FOR PAPERS PROPOSED SOCIETY FOR ANCIENT MEDICINE PANEL AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE 2005 ANNUAL MEETING
The Society for Ancient Medicine invites submissions for a panel it will propose for the 78th annual meeting of the American Association for the History of Medicine, to be held in Birmingham, Alabama, 7 April – 10 April 2005 (conference details will be posted at: <http://www.histmed.org/meetings.htm>). Topics on any area of ancient medicine – Eastern and Western — and its afterlife into later periods are welcome, but of particular interest will be those having to do with the social, economic, political, and cultural issues that affect medical concepts and practices or are affected by them.
The AAHM requests that papers represent original work that is not already published or in press, and hopes that contributors make their texts available for consideration by the Bulletin of the History of Medicine, their official journal.
Papers should be on a topic appropriate for a 20-minute talk. If at all possible, please submit your proposal as an e-mail attachment to Dr. Julie Laskaris ([email protected]); otherwise, please send eight copies of your abstract to Dr. Laskaris at: the Department of Classical Studies, University of Richmond, Richmond, VA, 23173, USA.
Abstracts should clearly state findings and conclusions as well as research questions. They should also provide the following information on the same sheet: name, preferred mailing address, work and home telephone numbers, e-mail address, present institutional affiliation, and academic degrees. Abstracts should be a maximum of 350 words and must be received by September 1, 2004.
