2010 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the History of Medicine
The American Association for the History of Medicine invites submissions for its 83rd annual meeting, to be held on the historic downtown campus of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, April 29 - May 2, 2010.
The Association welcomes paper submissions on any aspect of the history of health and healing; the evolution of medical and surgical ideas, practices, specialties, and institutions; and on the transformation of illness, disease, and public health over time. Papers bearing on all aspects of medicine, health, and healing, and examining all regions of the world are welcome; and papers must represent original research not already published or in press. The Program Committee accepts single-paper proposals (each presentation is limited to 20 minutes). The committee also accepts proposals for sessions and for luncheon workshops. The Association encourages speakers to make their manuscripts available for consideration by the Bulletin of the History of Medicine, the official journal of the AAHM.
Submissions should define the topic succinctly, propose a historical argument, describe the evidence supporting the claim, and state the major conclusion(s) of the proposed paper. When proposing a narrative history, proposals must summarize the outlines of the story, identify major agents, and specify conflicts or issues to be discussed. All submissions must also provide the following information on the same sheet as the abstract: name, preferred mailing address, work and home telephone numbers, e-mail address, present institutional affiliation, and academic degrees. Abstracts must be received by 15 September 2009. E-mail or faxed proposals cannot be accepted.
TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL: Follow the link on the Association's website (http://histmed.org) to use the online abstract submissions system.
If you are unable to submit proposals online, send eight copies of your one-page abstract (350 words maximum) to the Program Committee Chair, Keith Wailoo, Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research, 30 College Avenue, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ 08901; (732) 932-8419; firstname.lastname@example.org.
