CFP: The Future of Medical History

Dear WHOMers,

Those of you involved with the international community of medical historians will want to know this – and also consider submitting abstracts for the proposed conference in July.

The Future of Medical History
15th – 17th July 2010
International Conference Announcement and Call for Papers

The Wellcome Trust and University College London have decided to close the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine and initiate a two year wind down, without a quinquennial peer review. This marks the end of the Centre, and its prior incarnation of the Academic Unit of the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine.

The academic staff of the Centre will be hosting a three day international conference on the Future of Medical History, to take place on 15-17 July 2010 at Goodenough College in London. In keeping with the research of the Centre and former Institute, contributions will be welcome on all aspects of medical history. Papers will be limited to 20 minutes each.

Please send an abstract and contact details to Lauren Cracknell (l.cracknell@ucl.ac.uk) by 1 June 2010. Due to current circumstances, the Centre will not be able to cover the cost of travel or accommodation.  Further details will be available on the Centre website soon.
