Call for papers: Healthcare: Supply and Demand in Prehistory and History

Gothenburg, 6-8 May, 2015

We invite colleagues to submit papers for an international interdisciplinary conference on the practice of medicine in the past, organised by the Department of Historical Studies at the University of Gothenburg.
Topic may include, but are not limited to, the definition of physical and mental health and disease, the impact of class and/or gender on healthcare, the spread of epidemics and countermeasures, physicians and patients, power relations between practitioners or between practitioners and patients. Papers that deal with archaeological, osteological, and iconographical evidence are as welcome as those that rely on textual sources. Our timeframe spans from the Palaeolithic to the recent past.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Charlotte Roberts (University of Durham), Lucinda McCray (Appalachian State University), and Julie Laskaris (University of Richmond).

The deadline for abstracts (max. 300 words) is 15 October, 2014. Abstracts should be sent to: Linnea Åshede (linnea.ashede@gu.se)

Notice of acceptance will be sent out before 1 November.
