The 2020 meeting of the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine will take place May 30-June 1, 2020 at Western University, in London, Ontario, situated on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Attawandaron (Neutral) people, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and with the Dish with One Spoon Convenant Wampum. In conjunction with the 2020 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Programme Committee calls for papers that address the theme of this year’s Congress: “Bridging Divides: Confronting Colonialism and Anti-Black Racism".
Proposals on topics unrelated to the Congress theme are also welcome. Scholars are invited to present research on the broadly-defined histories of medicine, healing, health, and disease.
Please submit an abstract of less than 350 words and one-page CV for consideration by November 29, 2019 by e-mail to CSHM2020@uwo.ca. The Programme Committee also encourages proposals for organised panels of three (3) related papers; in this case, please submit a panel proposal of less than 350 words in addition to an abstract and one-page CV from each presenter. The Committee will notify applicants of its decision by January 31, 2020.
Those who accept an invitation to present at the meeting agree to provide French and English versions of the accepted abstract for inclusion in the bilingual Programme Book.
