Nueva Publicación: Imago civitatis. Hospitales y manicomios en Occidente

Las instituciones públicas de asistencia han tenido y continúan teniendo, desde la Edad Media, un rol fundamental y activo en la configuración del espacio urbano, social, cultural, económico y político, puesto que son piezas clave para la reproducción de la propia idea de «comunidad» o de «ciudad». Por este motivo, su estudio histórico se ha convertido en un observatorio privilegiado, por la propia naturaleza de estos establecimientos, para capturar realidades imposibles de entrever desde otros escenarios de la ciudad.
Este libro nace a partir de la celebración del V Simposio Internacional «Els Abrils de l’Hospital», cuyo leitmotiv fue «Historia y Etnografía Hospitalarias». El encuentro, que tuvo lugar en la Universitat Rovira i Virgili de Tarragona y en el Institut Pere Mata de Reus en 2016, tuvo por objeto poner en relación a estudiosos e investigadores de diferentes ámbitos y adscripciones para ayudar a visibilizar las potencialidades del estudio histórico de los hospitales haciendo porosos los límites entre la historia, las ciencias sociales y los estudios culturales.

ALHHS/MeMA Call for Program Proposals

The 2019 Program Committee seeks your participation in the ALHHS/MeMA Annual Meeting, taking place on Thursday, April 25, in Columbus, Ohio. We have some exciting plans in store for the 2019 meeting, and success depends on hearing from a wide range of our members.

First, I’m delighted to announce that the 2019 meeting will feature a special-focus panel on intersections and partnerships between museums and libraries/archives, chaired by James Edmonson.  Please consider presenting as part of this panel.

Next, by popular demand, this meeting will include a poster session, along with traditional paper/presentations and lightning talks.  So, there are a variety of ways to shine a light on the good work that you all are doing, and share your insights with your colleagues. 

Based on the feedback from the 2018 meeting, our members are most interested in the following topics:
·       Born-digital archives and challenges related to paper and/or digital preservation
·       New outreach and programming initiatives
·       Examples of digital humanities projects and infrastructure
·       Diversity and inclusion initiatives
·       Embedding our collections in the curriculum
However, please do not feel limited by the above.  We welcome presentations on any topic of interest and relevance to our membership.

Please submit your proposal using the form at https://goo.gl/forms/K9e1DbQwuqEJiMIR2.  If proposing a paper/presentation, please indicate whether you want to be considered for the special-focus panel.

The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, December 10, 2018.  We will notify proposers of our decisions in early January, to give members sufficient time to make their travel requests and plans.

Duke University, History of Medicine Travel Grants

The History of Medicine Collections in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University is accepting applications for our travel grant program.

Our holdings include over 20,000 print items and 4,500 unique manuscripts along with photographs, prints, and over 800 medical instruments and artifacts including a large collection of ivory anatomical manikins. Collection strengths include but are not limited to anatomical atlases, human sexuality, materia medica, pediatrics, psychiatry, and obstetrics & gynecology.

Any faculty member, graduate or undergraduate student, or independent scholar with a research project requiring the use of materials held by the History of Medicine Collections is eligible to apply. Writers, creative and performing artists, film makers and journalists are welcome to apply.  All applicants must reside outside of a 100-mile radius of Durham, NC.

Grant money may be used for: transportation expenses (including air, train or bus ticket charges; car rental; mileage using a personal vehicle; parking fees); accommodations; and meals. Expenses will be reimbursed once the grant recipient has completed his or her research visit(s) and has submitted original receipts.
Research topics should be strongly supported by the History of Medicine Collections.  We encourage applicants to contact the Curator of the History of Medicine Collections to discuss research projects and Rubenstein Library collections that might support it before submitting an application. 

The deadline for application is January 31, 2019 by 5:00 PM EST. Recipients will be announced in March 2019. Grants must be used between April 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.

CfP: History of Science Society 2019 Annual Meeting

The History of Science Society (HSS) will hold its 2019 annual meeting in the beautiful Dutch town of Utrecht, a short train ride from Amsterdam. Since this will be the HSS’s first meeting outside of North America, and we will be closer to scholars in Russia, in East and South Asia, and Africa, we especially encourage proposals that include scholars from different countries. The Society encourages submissions on all topics. Proposals (250-word maximum for abstracts) must be submitted via the HSS submission system on the meeting website: hss2019.hssonline.org. Click Abstract Submission on the navigation menu. If you have did not create an account for the 2018 meeting website, you will have to create a new one in order to submit an abstract. Unlike many academic societies, the HSS does not require that participants be members, but all participants must register for the meeting.


We will give strong preference to sessions that reflect diversity, e.g. diversity in institutional affiliation, gender, and/or in professional rank. Only one proposal per person may be submitted – workshops, simply moderating a session, posters, and other non-typical proposals (e.g., interest group lectures) are excluded from this restriction (for a maximum of two presentations), but roundtables are not. If your name appears more than once, outside of these exceptions, you must choose which proposal will go forward. Prior participation at the 2017 (Toronto) and 2018 (Seattle) meetings will be taken into consideration.


All roundtable, organized session, and contributed paper proposals must be submitted by 7 January 2019 (23:59 CET). See the chart below for how the deadline converts to your time zone or check this online time zone converter. The HSS will work with organizers who wish to pre-circulate papers.

The deadline for Flashtalks, limited to graduate students, is 4 February 2019 (23:59 CET).


To encourage and aid the creation of panels with strong thematic coherence that draw upon historians of science across institutions and ranks, the meeting website features a discussion board for users. Anyone with a panel or paper idea seeking like-minded presenters should post and consult the postings there to round out a prospective session. Alternatively, you may also search for collaborators on Twitter, tagging your post with #hss19 #collab. Organized sessions have much higher acceptance rates than individual papers.


To defray travel costs, we will award National Science Foundation travel grants to graduate students, independent scholars, and recent PhDs (degree in the past 5 years) who are participating in the meeting. Only U.S. citizens or those studying at U.S. institutions are eligible for NSF grants. HSS will offer a limited number of travel grants for students, independent scholars, and recent PhDs who are participating but are ineligible for NSF grants. Dependent care grants (up to $200) will be offered for those who need such assistance. Additional information on these grants and instructions for application can be found on the meeting website.


  • Selection Guidelines: The Committee on Meetings and Programs (CoMP) has established a set of best practices and guidelines for proposal. Program chairs will look to these best practices and guidelines when accepting abstracts for the 2019 meeting.
  • Additional instructions for abstract submission may be found on the meeting website. Please read these instructions carefully, as they have changed from previous years. Failure to comply fully with instructions or to complete the abstract submission process completely will preclude your submission from consideration.
  • To preserve formatting of your abstract across platforms, only plain text is supported for abstracts. This means that bold, italic, and other formatting is not possible.
  • All titles and abstract summaries should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style format. Easily confirm that your title follows CMS rules by using capitalizemytitle.com.
  • Use the contact form on the meeting website for any additional questions or inquiries.

CfP: Symposium "Climate Change: History and Philosophy of Science and NOS Challenges"

Symposium proposed by the
Inter-Divisional Teaching Commission (IDTC) of the DHST/DLPMST of IUHPST

Papers are sought for a proposed Symposium under the title “Climate Change: History and Philosophy of Science and NOS Challenges” at next year’s XVI INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF LOGIC, METHODOLOGY AND PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (CLMPST), due to be held in Prague from 5-10 August 2019


The study of Climate Change as a philosophic subject was until recent times at very early stages (Winsberg 2018). The first entry related to ‘Climate Science’ in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy appear as late as 2018 (Parker, 2018). This is more awkward if we recall several of the main issues related to Climate Change and the scientific practice associated: epistemic trust, models, risk, uncertainty, probability, values, data, instruments and complexity among many others. 
Also, the bridge between research on Climate Change and policy and social spheres create problems that are not settled such as the epistemic trust or, in some other communities the relation between science and non-science. 
At the same time, the development of the philosophical study of Climate Change can convey new educational insights to teach a diversity of philosophical topics. This is particularly relevant to the philosopher of science engaged in ‘social relevant philosophy’ but also to all the other philosophers of science.  
This Symposium aims to bring together philosophers of science prone to shed light upon the above issues and correlated ones. 

If you are interested in participating in this Inter-Divisional Teaching Commission (IDTC) symposium, please send a 500-word abstract to Paulo Maurício (paulo.asterix@gmail.com)  by no later than December 9th, Sunday, 2018. Please note that we ask for a 500-word abstract because all abstracts must be submitted through the EasycChair platform by each author, even the ones intended for the symposium until December 15th, 2018.

CfP: Beyond Borders: Health and Medicine in Historical Context

Call for Papers opens: January 2019 and closes 31 May 2019
This conference is 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 a major theme of our conference.
This biennial conference is not exclusive in terms of its themes, and aims to reflect the diversity of the discipline of the history of health and medicine. We welcome papers from all areas of that history, including health systems, public health, indigenous health, mental health, biography, hospital history and nursing history. We also welcome papers/panels relating to medical museums/exhibitions.
Submissions from scholars across the range of career stages are welcome, especially those from postgraduate and early career researchers. We offer competitive travel grants to postgraduate students to attend the conference.
 Please see our conference website for further details: http://anzshm2019.org/

CfP/CfA: Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference 2019

Conference Description

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the interplay between human, ethical, social, cultural, and political values, on the one hand, and science, technology, engineering, and medical research and practice, on the other hand. We invite presentations that seek not only to understand how values and science have and do influence one another, but also how they must and should influence one another (as well as types of influence that should be avoided). From this background, presentations that explore the relationship between science and the public and the relationship between science and social justice are also welcome. Finally, this conference ultimately seeks to promoting ethically responsible and socially beneficial scientific research and technological innovation, and critical reflection about the influence of science, technology, and medicine on our values, culture, practices, and worldviews.
Proposals from any disciplinary or theoretical approach that addresses these themes are welcome, and interdisciplinary and socially engaged work is particularly of interest.

SRPoiSE Plenary Session: The 10th Anniversary of Science, Policy, and the Value-Free Ideal by Heather Douglas

A discussion of the impacts of the book over the last 10 years and what the next 10 years holds for discussions of values in science, broadly construed.
