Announcing the 3rd Annual Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine, to be held the weekend of September 30-October 2, 2005, and hosted by the University of Pennsylvania and the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. The seminar is organized and coordinated by graduate students across North America working in fields related to the history of medicine. Our mission is to foster a sense of community and provide a forum for sharing and critiquing graduate research by peers from a variety of institutions and backgrounds.
The conference will feature presentations from twelve graduate students on the history of medicine, disease, and health and healing. In addition, the seminar will include a roundtable discussion entitled "Gender and Medicine: Considerations on the Role of Women as Medical Professionals."
This year’s seminar will feature a guided tour of the library of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia and free admission to the Mütter Museum. Those familiar with the Mütter know what a treat this will be. For more information on the College Library and the Mütter Museum, see http://www.collphyphil.org.
Sponsored by the Department of History and Sociology of Science and the Bates Center for Nursing History at the University of Pennsylvania, and the College of Physicians of Philadephia.
