AAHM News: Statement on COVID-19

The officers of the American Association for the History of Medicine are monitoring the spread of COVID-19, and its implications for our annual meeting.  Many professional organizations have cancelled upcoming meetings.  The officers are reviewing statements issued by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are in close contact with the AAHM Local Arrangements and Program Committees.  As of March 10, 2020, the officers and the committees have elected not to cancel the meeting and to continue to follow developments with COVID-19.

It is quite possible that decisions made by the University of Michigan, City of Ann Arbor, State of Michigan, and various federal agencies may take the decision about the annual meeting out of the Association’s hands. As of March 10, 2020, none of the above-mentioned entities have restricted domestic travel or forbidden large meetings.

Some members may want to wait before making a decision to attend the annual meeting. AAHM will make refunds without penalty to all who register if the meeting is cancelled. AAHM also will refund those who have registered and later decide they cannot attend. The AAHM will be flexible about its requirement to register by April 7 for people who appear on the program. In addition, we have waived the late fee so that individuals can register until April 30 at the early registration rate. Our meeting hotels, the Kensington and the Even will hold our reserved room blocks until April 24, 2020.

The AAHM Officers and the Local Arrangements and Program Committees will send another notification to all members and those who have registered for the annual meeting by March 31, or sooner if events warrant.

AAHM President

AAHM News: Orals Bibliographies for Students

The AAHM is updating its repository of bibliographies. This repository is a tool to aid graduate students who are building readings lists in preparation for their qualifying examinations in fields related to the History of Medicine.

We are especially seeking new contributions related to the following categories:
– Health Activism
– Disability History
– Drug/Pharmaceutical History
– Gender, Reproduction, and Sexuality in Medicine
– Public Health
– Medical Ethics
– Race and Medicine
– Medical/Health Humanities
– Homeopathy/Alternative Medicine
– Miscellaneous
These categories are permeable in nature and only represent a general grouping, rather than strict sub-disciplinary divisions. That being said, we welcome a variety of types of comp lists that speak to the History of Medicine or Medical/Health Humanities.
If you would like to contribute your exam book list to the repository, please email it in .pdf form to the Chair of the Education and Outreach Committee, Claire Clark (claire dot clark at uky dot edu). We ask that you redact all personally identifying information (i.e. your name, institution, and examiner).

The Bulletin of the History of Medicine will be adding a three-part focus on pedagogy beginning with its 2016 volume. The spring issue will introduce a new journal section covering topics related to teaching in the history of medicine today. Along with the print section, the journal will debut a pedagogy blog, a more immediate and informal place for the history of medicine teaching community to share what has worked in their diverse classrooms. In addition, the Bulletin will be maintaining a syllabus archive, similar to the one previously hosted by the NLM.
