This one-day workshop offers postgraduates and early career researchers an opportunity to reflect on how historians might research and write histories relating to public health and voluntary action.
We welcome papers that emphasise the methodological, thematic or evidential problems, issues, or challenges speakers have encountered in their research into public health and voluntary action. Submissions are invited from all periods and locations. Papers might address, but are not limited to, issues relating to how charity and voluntary action have targeted public health, such as through:
•Philanthropic sector movements or public health campaigns
•The running of voluntary institutions, such as hospitals.
•Influence over sanitary reform and government legislation.
Papers presented in the first part of the workshop will provide the basis for a roundtable discussion led by Prof. Virginia Berridge and Dr. Alex Mold in the second part of the day.
Proposals of up to 300 words should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 24 September 2010. Informal enquiries and requests to attend the workshop but not present a paper should also be sent to this address.
