We would like to invite you to participate in a two-day symposium on May 10-11, 2013, sponsored jointly by the Center for Science, Technology, Medicine & Society (University of California, Berkeley) and the History of Medicine and Health Care Program at the University of Calgary, Alberta (Canada).
The symposium will cover the history of health-related disciplines, to include a range of topics from ancient to the modern period. We are pleased to announce our keynote presentation “Creative Disability and the Shaking Palsy: Approaching a History of Parkinson’s Disease” by Dr. Dorothy Porter, distinguished Historian of Health Sciences with the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. Her research highlights the history of public health through a perspective of health citizenship, and emphasizes the relationship between medicine, social sciences, and the state.
The object of the symposium is to encourage and highlight student research/scholarship to sharpen awareness of what is continuous with the present, and what lessons and insights can be learned form the past to prepare for the future. Our mission is to (a) foster interdisciplinary and trans-chronological exchanges among new and emerging scholars; (b) to create a safe platform where they can share and discuss research with peers and faculty; (c) to stimulate student networking in related disciplines across State/National/International institutions.
Abstracts should be 150-200 words maximum and sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com no later than 20 March, 2013. For further information do not hesitate to contact the symposium coordinators, as listed below.
