Society for the Social History of Medicine 2014 Conference: Disease, Health, and the State
10-12 July 2014

The Centre for Health, Medicine and Society: Past and Present, Oxford Brookes University and the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, University of Oxford
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.

Call for Posters
As well as a traditional Call for Papers, proposals are invited for a special Poster Exhibit on the conference theme to be held on the second day of the conference. The exhibit will provide participants with an opportunity to showcase their research in a format that is interactive and collegial. It offers an alternative for those eager to share their work through one-on-one discussion, is especially useful for work-in-progress, and may be particularly appropriate for projects where visual or material evidence represents a central component.  An award will be given to the best poster displayed at the conference.
Deadline for paper and poster proposals: 1 January 2014.
