Southern Association for the History of Medicine and Science
Call for papers for the Sixth Annual Meeting, 2004
The Southern Association for the History of Medicine and Science (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 School of Medicine, Augusta State University and the Center for the Study of Georgia History. The meeting will be held at Augusta State University, within walking distance of the Partridge Inn (conference hotel) located in the Summerville Historic District. The conference fee will include a dinner on Friday evening in a private home in the historic district, a tour of the Morris Museum of Southern Art, continental breakfasts and lunches.
The SAHMS welcomes papers on the history of medicine and science, broadly
defined 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 from 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 (approximately 250 words) abstract of each paper. 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 by early November, 2003. All presenters will be responsible for their own travel and registration costs.
