The 22nd History of Medicine Days Conference will be held at the University of Calgary on March 8th and March 9th, 2013.
THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE DAYS CONFERENCE is an annual two-day, nation-wide conference held at the University of Calgary. The next conference is being held on Friday, March 8th and Saturday, March 9th, 2013.
Undergraduates and early graduate students are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation. We welcome you to give a 10 to 12 minute oral or 2 to 3 minute poster presentation (with additional discussion time afterwards) on the history of medicine and health care. The topics for presentation would cover a wide range and could include areas such as the Classics, the History of Public Health, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Human Biology and Neuroscience etc. Prizes will be awarded in different categories and all are invited to join us at the Awards Banquet on the last evening of the conference.
Each student must present an original research attempt with new methodological perspectives on the topic and/or have a critical discussion following the presentation.
If three to four students would like to present together on a related topic, this could be done in a panel form. A suitable discussant will then be identified by the conference organizers to comment upon these particular papers. We ask, however, that presentations and poster abstracts be sent in by one author only, not multiple authors.
Eminent History of Medicine Keynote Speaker, Professor Guel Russell from the Department of Humanities in Medicine at Texas A & M University (United States) will provide the 2013 keynote address. Her topic will be from the History of Arabic/Islamic Medicine, and the exact lecture title will be provided later with the final conference program.
The deadline for Abstract Submission is January 13, 2013.
