A message from the Department of History, University of Calgary:
The History of Medicine Days Conference is an annual two-day, nation-wide conference held at the University of Calgary.
Undergraduates and early graduate students are welcome to give a 10 to 12 minute presentation (with additional discussion time) on the history of medicine and health care. The topics cover a wide range and would include areas from Classics, the History of Public Health, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Human Biology and Neuroscience etc. Prizes are awarded and there is an Awards Banquet on the last evening of the conference.
Each student must present an original research attempt with new methodological perspectives on the topic and/or have a critical discussion following the presentation.
It is possible and encouraged that two to four students could present on a related topic which may be included in a panel form. A suitable discussant will then be identified by the conference organizers to comment upon these papers. We ask, however, that individual presentations and poster abstracts be sent in by only one author and not multiple authors.
A topnotch History of Medicine Keynote Speaker has been invited to give the 2012 keynote address.
For any further information on the application for the conference, please visit the website of the Calgary History of Medicine and Health Care Program http://www.homhcp.ucalgary.ca (coming up shortly).
The deadline for Abstract Submission is December 31, 2011.
