Calls for Papers: AAHM 2021 Call for Papers Extended

The American Association for the History of Medicine (AAHM) 2021 Program Committee is extending the time for submitting proposals for the 2021 annual meeting until midnight, Pacific Time (US), 26 October 2020. Now that the AAHM Council has decided to hold the May 2021 annual meeting as a virtual event only, the Program Committee wanted to extend the deadline so that all may consider this new opportunity to share research in an innovative format. We particularly want to bring your attention to New Media Formats:  podcast, film, and poster options. The Program Committee will provide some technical guidance for successful proposals in the New Media category. Graduate students will want to consider submitting a proposal for a flash talk, a session spotlighting graduate student research and chaired by senior scholars.  The shorter format of the flash talk could be a distinct advantage in the online environment.

Calls for Papers:

SAHMS is seeking paper, panel, and roundtable proposals for its 2021 virtual conference, to be hosted by Emory University on March 11-13. We welcome abstracts on a broad range of topics from any period in the history of science, medicine, and technology, and encourage submissions from graduate students, faculty, professionals, and independent scholars. We especially invite submissions that address global histories, as well as those related to the histories of disability, race, gender, or the environment. Presentations on public history, digital history, museums, the medical humanities, or teaching are also welcome.

Topics do not need to be Southern in focus and presenters do not need to be affiliated with Southern academic institutions.

Please submit your proposals via the SAHMS website by December 1, 2020.

All of our 2021 conference sessions and events will be held online. Presented papers may also be published in the conference’s proceedings or invited for submission to the organization’s journal.
