Novedad editorial: Graduados en Medicina por la Universidad de Irache (1613-1769)

Autor: Fernando Serrano Larráyoz Url:  https://www.pamiela.com/index.php/ensayo/universitas/graduados-en-medicina-por-la-universidad-de-irache-1613-1769-detail La evolución histórica de la Universidad benedictina de Irache queda todavía por trazar. De hecho su progresión historiográfica es ciertamente irregular. Así, frente a trabajos rigurosos que inciden principalmente en sus orígenes, existen vacíos hasta hoy dificilmente explicables. Uno de ellos, quizás de los más importantes, es el análisis de aquellos estudiantes y graduados que pasaron por el centro universitario durante su dilatada trayectoria. Este libro pretende ser una pieza más en la reconstrucción de ese puzle que es la historia total de la Universidad de Irache, ofreciendo el repertorio de graduados, tanto hispanos como del resto de Europa, que alcanzaron los grados de bachiller, licenciado y doctor en Medicina (y Cirugía) entre los años 1613 y 1769. Ciento cincuenta y seis años de vida universitaria y d

CfP: Drugs and Drug Market

American Journal of Qualitative Research (AJQR) is pleased to announce a special issue on “Drugs and Drug Market” to be published in Spring 2020. The objective of this issue is to understand the current illegal drug market in various countries as a reference for policy makers and academics given the fact that qualitative research can provide more insight and information, which could be helpful for understanding the structure and dynamics of the illegal drug markets. AJQR publishes purely qualitative research which includes but not limited to ethnography, interviews, content analysis, case studies, historical analysis and descriptive research. To that end, the guest editors welcome to have any manuscripts written in a variety of qualitative perspectives. We are specifically interested in having manuscripts from different countries and regions, which are coauthored by scholars and practitioners. The possible topics include, but are not limited to: New Trends in Ille

CfP: Locating Medical Television, London 2020

Locating Medical Television. The Televisual Spaces of Medicine and Health in the 20th Century 18-20 March 2020 , Science Museum Dana Research Centre, London, UK Medical television programmes, across their history, have had specific relationships to places and spaces: On the one level, they have represented medical and health places: consulting rooms, hospitals, the home, community spaces, public health infrastructures and the rest. As television-producers have represented these places, there has been an interaction with the developing capabilities of television technologies and grammars. Moreover, producers have borrowed their imaginaries of medical and health places from other media (film, photographs, museum displays etc.) and integrated, adjusted and reformulated them into their work. But medical television has also worked spatially in the political sense of being broadcast internationally, at the national level, and locally, interacting with differing r

CfP: Fourth International Conference on the History of Physics

Url:  http://hop2020.iopconfs.org/Home This conference is the fourth in the series following the first three, which were held at Trinity College, Cambridge UK in 2014, Pöllau, Austria in 2016 and San Sebastian, Spain in 2018. It will be the first to be formally overseen by an International Advisory Committee which is recognised by the Institute of Physics and the European Physical Society.* The aim is to bring together physicists interested in the history of their subject and professional historians of science in the belief that proponents of the two disciplines, with their different perceptions and methodologies, can benefit from interaction and discourse.  Student attendance and participation will be encouraged in the firm belief that a study of the history of the subject can inspire future generations by informing them about the lives and work of great scientists, and also facilitate a better understanding of topics that present conceptual problems today jus
