CfP: 'Encountering Knowledge: Geographies, Concepts and Materials from the Early Modern Period to the Present'
Url: https://encounteringknowledges.wordpress.com/ 'Encountering Knowledge: Geographies, Concepts and Materials from the Early Modern Period to the Present', Faculty of English, Cambridge 27 September 2018 This workshop invites scholars to discuss the boundaries and defining characteristics of cultural encounters across spaces and time periods though the lens of knowledge. The scope of this event is to tackle issues related to accessing, conceptualizing and exploring different epistemic regimes by looking at past and present encounters of knowledge from an interdisciplinary perspective. In the last decade, there has been an increasing interest in the movement, localization and ecologies of knowledge. The resulting body of scholarly work has made western dichotomies –such as west and east, centre and periphery, nature and culture, global and indigenous—fall short. In addition, cultural approaches to the study of knowledge have moved away from the study of disembod
Call for applications for a vacant PhD post, to study the “History of the Medical Faculty at the Reichsuniversität Strassburg 1941-1944”.
Duration: 2018-2021 PhD post: Gross annual salary: 27,150 Euros Title of thesis project: Between the laboratory and the clinic: Clinical research at the Medical Faculty of the Reichsuniversität Strassburg in connection with the hôpital civil (civil hospital) Summary: The need to pursue academic and historical research focusing on the Medizinische Fakultät of the Reichsuniversität Strassburg resurfaced in 2015 following the discovery of remains of a Jewish concentration camp victim in a University of Strasbourg collection. In response, from September 27, 2016 onwards, the Université de Strasbourg established an independent historical commission for a four-year period to undertake scientific work, so as to shed new light on the unknown history of the institution. This project includes a three-year PhD contract at the Université de Strasbourg for thesis work in History/History of Science, concerning the founding and functioning of the Medizinische Fakultät of the Re
Url: https://bmdoyleblog.wordpress.com/2018/05/15/cfp-travel-and-the-hospital-from-pilgrimage-to-medical-tourism-barcelona-april-2019/ Medical tourism is an increasingly popular feature of health care today. Yet it is not always recognised that, throughout their history, hospitals have attracted patients from afar seeking cures, both spiritual and physical, not available at home. While much work has previously focused on the institution as a fixed place, often closely associated with a specific locality, the hospital’s role as a focus for a wider network of health needs and health consumers has been largely overlooked. This neglected topic will be the focus of our twelfth conference. From its inception the hospital provided care and cure for pilgrims, either en route to, or on their arrival at, shrines, as well as for patients from beyond the urban centre, some from local areas and others travelling great distances to access treatment. These institutions were also

There has been a long relationship between television and medicine: some of the small screen’s most popular shows, on both sides of the Atlantic, have been medical in focus, from hospital-set dramas like ER to reality TV shows and docudramas like One Born Every Minute . This fascination with doctors, hospitals and bodies is also shared by period drama television, but scholarship has paid little attention to this intersection/relationship. Recent period dramas including The Knick, Mercy Street, and Charite , for example, use the hospital setting familiar from older shows like Bramwell , to address larger themes about the professionalization of medicine, medical innovations and failures, and the gender politics that surround the profession. Dramas like Call the Midwife document the progress of the NHS and female reproductive health while also engaging in contemporary debates about contraception, abortion, and disability. In addition, medical-driven narratives abound in al
