Call for Papers, Annual Meeting, CSHM, May 2012

The Canadian Society for the History of Medicine is launching a call for papers for its annual meeting which takes place at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo between 26 – 28 May 2012. The general theme of this year’s Congress is “Crossroads: Scholarship in an Uncertain World.”

The Program Committee for the annual meeting of the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine thus invites researchers from all disciplines to submit proposals in English or French related to the Congress theme. The Committee will also consider proposals which are not directly related to the theme but are related to the history of healthcare and medicine in Canada and elsewhere. Graduate students are especially encouraged to apply.

The Program Committee encourages proposals for panels of three papers with a moderator. The committee, however, will also consider individual proposals for papers.
Please send a brief abstract of your proposal of not more than 350 words plus a one-page curriculum vitae along with your contact information by 30 November 2011 to: Tracy Penny Light, CSHM/ SCHM Program Co-Chair with Steven Bednarski, Department of Sexuality, Marriage, and Family Studies, St. Jerome’s University in the University of Waterloo, 290 Westmount Road N., Waterloo, ON, N2L 3G3, [email protected].

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit proposals and curriculum vitae electronically. If you prefer to send your documents by mail, please submit an original and 3 copies.

The Committee will announce its results before 15 January 2012.
Take note that every speaker invited to participate at Congress must provide a bilingual summary (French and English) of their paper. Please also note that all presenters at our meeting must be members of the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine.
