Call for Papers: The Southern Association for the History of Medicine and Science

The SAHMS announces a call for papers for its sixth annual meeting to be held February 27-28, 2004 in Augusta Georgia. The SAHMS meeting will be co-hosted by the Medical college of Georgia and the Center for the Study of Georgia History, Augusta State University.

The SAHMS welcomes papers on the history of medicine and science, broadly construed to include historical, literary, anthropological, philosophical, and sociological approaches to the history of health care and science. The SAHMS meeting does not focus solely on Southern history of medicine and science topics but is international in scope. The society’s name relates only to the location of its annual meeting. Papers by scholars from all areas of the country are welcome, as are international guests. Participants may propose individual papers or symposiums of several papers devoted to a particular topic or theme. PhD students are invited to submit works in progress and should indicate their PhD student status.

Please submit a one-page abstract of each paper, including background, purpose, methods and findings. Also include a one-page c.v. with phone/fax and e-mail addresses. Papers should be submitted no later than September 15, 2003. Prospective participants should not submit papers already published, already presented or scheduled for presentation at another meeting. Electronic submissions are preferred. The program will be announced October 30, 2003. All presenters are responsible for their own travel and registration costs.
