American Association for the History of Medicine annual meeting

The American Association for the History of Medicine (AAHM) invites abstracts for papers in any area of the history of health and healing for its 96th annual meeting, to be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, May 11-14, 2023. The AAHM welcomes papers on the histories of medicine, disease, and health broadly defined, including the history of medical ideas, practices, institutions, and technologies; the history of healing, disability, illness, disease, pharmaceuticals, and public health; and the history of peoples’ experiences of health, illness, and disability.

In response to strong expressed desire for a virtual option, and mindful of the challenges of a mixed in-person and online event, the AAHM Council has approved, on a trial basis, a supplementary one-day virtual meeting to occur approximately one week later. All submissions should indicate whether they want to be considered for the in-person or the virtual meeting. Major elements of the in-person meeting, such as the Garrison lecture and the awards presentation, will be broadcast, but owing to technological and financial obstacles, regular panels will not include virtual or pre-recorded presentations.

All information on submitting a paper can be found here.
