3-7 December, Auckland New Zealand.
Whilst New Zealand is far removed geographically from the epicentre of many significant past medical developments, the Australian and New Zealand Society of the History of Medicine believe it is important to view the history of health and medicine in a broad international perspective, with ideas and systems taking on different forms in different contexts. It is this intersection between the local and international which will form a major theme of our conference. Convenors welcome papers from all areas of that history, including health systems, public health, indigenous health, mental health, biography, hospital history and nursing history. Convenors also welcome papers/panels relating to medical museums/exhibitions. Submissions from scholars across the range of career stages are welcome, especially those from postgraduate and early career researchers. The conference offers competitive travel grants to postgraduate students to attend the conference.
Abstracts due 31 May 2019.
