CFP – Social Science History Association, Vancouver, BC, November 1-4, 2012


The Health, Medicine and Body Network invite proposals for paper and panels for consideration on the next program of the 37th Annual Meeting of the Social Science History Association (SSHA) in Vancouver, British Columbia this coming November.

The members of the Social Science History Association share a common interest in interdisciplinary and systematic approaches to historical research, and many of us find the SSHA one of the most stimulating conferences that we attend. The thematic topic of the 2012 annual meeting is “Histories of Capitalism.”

We welcome panels and papers on any topic of interest to scholars of the histories of medicine, health care and related subjects, especially as they may relate to the meeting theme.

The SSHA requests that submissions be made by means of its web conference management system. You will be asked to submit a paper title, brief abstract, and contact information. To access, you will need to create an account, which is a very simple process. Here is the direct link for submissions and the general SSHA CFP:

The online system is now accepting submissions. If you have any questions, please contact any of the Health, Medicine, Body co-chairs (Sasha Mullally [email protected]; Elisabeth Englberg [email protected])
Please note that the deadline for submissions is March 1, 2012.
