The 1st West Coast Graduate Conference in the History of Medicine will be held on April 2-3, 2010, and hosted by the Department of Greek and Roman Studies & the History of Medicine and Health Care Program at the University of Calgary (Canada). This conference is open to graduate students across North-America (particularly the West Coast states and provinces) working in all fields related to the history of medicine and health care from ancient times to the modern period. Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary and trans-chronological exchanges and providing a forum for sharing and discussing graduate research by peers and faculty from a variety of disciplines and institutions.
This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Susan Lanzoni (MIT, Cambridge MA) and her talk is entitled: “The Empathic Index: Psychopathology, Cultural Identity and the Limits of Feeling”. A website containing basic information has been setup at http://homepages.ucalgary.ca/~gmedconf/. Those wishing to offer papers, or be put on a mailing list for information regarding further conference details, should e-mail Dr. Frank Stahnisch at email@example.com. Some financial assistance may be possible for those aiming to attend. Registrants and presenters will be notified by March 1, 2010, whether their participation can be accepted.
