We invite scholars in history, the social sciences, and the humanities, to participate in the first North American conference focusing on ‘immunology in practice’. We welcome individual papers or session proposals on topics that discuss how immunology or an immunological approach has functioned in the bio-medical, cultural or social definition of health and disease, and in the development of treatments, tests, and institutions.
The conference will be held at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto, in Canada, June 17-20, 2004.
Abstracts should be no more than 250 words and should clearly state the purpose, thesis and principal findings of the paper to be presented. Abstracts should be sent by post to Pauline Mazumdar, or by e-mail to Jenn Keelan.
