CfP: 2nd Joint Meeting of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences and the International Society for Gender Medicine

We welcome proposals in all areas of sex and gender differences research, spanning the gamut from fundamental biology (including evolution, genetics, molecular/cellular biology, and physiology) to translational science and clinical research. Symposia should highlight an area of current research on sex and gender differences, rather than being focused on issues related only to one sex. Proposed symposia should attempt to include basic and clinical science (i.e., from bench to bedside). We particularly encourage proposals involving speakers and topics new to the OSSD and IGM, including proposals focusing on fast-moving, timely areas, and proposals bringing together interdisciplinary perspectives on a common theme. Symposia should be chaired by an OSSD or IGM member or co-chaired by two members. Proposals from new and prospective members are encouraged, so membership of the chair(s) is not required at the time of proposal submission. However, non-member chairs should be prepar

Novedad editorial: Health Policies in Interwar Europe

By Josep L. Barona Research into public health policies and expert instruction has been oriented traditionally in the national context. There is a rich historiography that analyses the development of health policies and systems in various European and American countries during the first decades of the twentieth century. What is often ignored, however, is the study of the great many connections and circulations of knowledge, people, technologies, artefacts and practices during that period between countries. This book redresses that balance.

CfP: Women and the chemical elements

Call for contributions, book project Women in their element In 2019, the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev’s first publication of the Periodic Table of Elements will be celebrated, and UNESCO has declared 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table. Of the many publications dealing with the history of the Periodic Table, few texts deal with women’s contributions. We are planning a collective volume on women and their contribution to the building and the understanding of the Periodic Table and of the elements themselves. The volume has the title Women in their element: Selected women’s contributions to the periodic system and will be edited by Annette Lykknes and Brigitte Van Tiggelen.  However, while a book on women’s
