Conferences: “Health History: Beyond Borders”, University of Auckland, New Zealand

“Health History: Beyond Borders”, 3-7 December 2019, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

We cordially invite members of the AAHM to attend the biennial conference of the Australian and New Zealand Society of the History of Medicine in December 2019. This conference will be located in Auckland, New Zealand. Whilst New Zealand is far removed geographically from the epicentre of many significant past medical developments, we believe it is important to view the history of health and medicine in a broad international perspective, with ideas and systems taking on different forms in different contexts. It is this intersection between the local and international which will form the major theme of our conference. We welcome papers from all areas of the history of health and medicine, including health systems, public health, indigenous health, mental health, women’s health, child health, biography, hospital history and nursing history. Call for papers will open in November 2018. For further information see our website:, or contact the conference convener, Professor Linda Bryder,
