CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS – DEADLINE JANUARY 21, 2024
Undergraduate and early graduate students from across Canada, the United States, and Overseas are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation on the history of medicine and health care. The presentations will be 10 to 12 minutes for oral, or 2 to 3 minutes for a poster (with additional discussion time afterwards). The poster display will be up for the entire conference.
The topics for presentation will cover a wide range and include areas such as the Classics, the History of Public Health, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Human Biology and Neuroscience, etc. Prizes will be awarded in different categories and all active participants are invited to join us at the Awards Dinner Event, in the evening, on the last day of the conference.
Each presenter must offer an original historical research attempt with new methodological perspectives on the topic and/or have a critical discussion following the presentation.
If two to four participants would like to present together on a related topic, this could be done in a panel form. A suitable discussant will then be identified by the conference organizers to comment upon these presentations. We ask, however, that presentations and poster abstracts be submitted by one author only (please include co-authors in the cc).
The Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Gabriel Finkelstein (University of Colorado, Denver, CO, USA), whose lecture is entitled: “Emil du Bois-Reymond as Educator: How a Neurophysiologist Sparked Innovations in Research, Teaching, History, and Philosophy.”
