JOINT ATLANTIC SEMINAR FOR THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE CALL FOR PAPERS
The Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine is seeking
abstracts for
research presentations on topics related to the history of health and
healing; of
medical ideas, practices, and institutions; and of illness, disease, and
public
health, from all eras and regions of the world.
The 10th Annual seminar will be held the weekend of October 5-6, 2012 in
New Haven,
CT and is jointly hosted by the Section in the History of Medicine and the
Program
in the History of Science and Medicine at Yale University.
Abstracts should be no more than 350 words and should clearly state the
purpose,
thesis, methodology, and principal findings of the paper to be presented.
Please
note that abstracts more than 350 words in length will not be reviewed.
Speakers
must be enrolled as graduate students at the time of the conference.
We will be accepting abstracts for twenty-minute presentations as well as
a limited
number of pre-circulated papers (20-25 pages). The pre-circulated paper
sessions
will be with a small group of peers who have read your paper before the
conference.
This option is ideal for papers that are being submitted for publication.

All abstracts should be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word
documents to
jasmed2012@gmail.com<mailto:jasmed2012@gmail.com> with a completed cover
page. The
cover page is attached this email and is also available at
www.jasmed.org<http://www.jasmed.org>. A panel of graduate students from
several
different institutions will review the abstracts. The deadline for
abstracts is May
31, 2012.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide financial support for travel to
participants. We will, however, make every effort to provide free
accommodation for
presenters. We urge students whose papers are accepted to seek financial
support
from their home institutions to participate in the seminar. Registration
for the
conference is free.
