Call for Papers: Workshop: Prosopography of Healthcare


Call for Papers: Workshop: Prosopography of Healthcare
Date: 1 June 2013
Venue: Kingston University, London

There is a growing band of historians conducting prosopographical projects
on topics relating to healthcare. The subjects of known projects span the
centuries and the trades, from mediaeval to the 20th century, including
nursing and medicine. A small group of nursing prosopographers (brought
together originally through Katherine Keats-Rowan’s excellent, but now
mothballed, Centre for Prosopography at Oxford) has decided the time is
right to convene a new group. This call for papers is to anyone who is,
has been, or is thinking of working on the history of healthcare, using
prosopography as an integral methodology. We plan to convene a
workshop/conference to discuss current and future projects, share ideas
and experiences. If you are interested in participating please send a
short abstract (200 words) describing your project (or project idea) to
arrive by 28 February 2013, to Sue Hawkins at [email protected].

Conveners: Sue Hawkins (Centre for the Historical Record, Kingston
University); Carmen Mangion (Dept. History, Birkbeck College London; Helen
Sweet, Wellcome History of Medicine Unit, Oxford University).
