Call for Papers
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE
Call for Papers, 1999 Annual Meeting. The 1999 meeting will be held 5-9
May 1999, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The Chair of the Program
Committee is Elizabeth Fee, Ph.D. Any person interested in presenting a
paper at this meeting is invited to submit an abstract (one original and
six copies) to Dr. Fee, Chief, History of Medicine Division, National
Library of Medicine, Bldg. 38, Room 1E-21, 8600 Rockville Pike,
Bethesda, MD 20894.
Any subject in the history of medicine is suitable for
presentation, but the paper must represent original work not already
published or in press. Presentations are limited to twenty minutes.
Abstracts must be typed single-spaced on one sheet of paper, and must
not exceed 300-350 words in length. Abstracts should embody not merely
a statement of a research question, but findings and conclusions
sufficient to allow assessment by the committee. The following
biographical information is also required: Name, title (occupation),
preferred mailing address, work and home telephone numbers, present
institutional affiliation and academic degrees. Abstracts must be
received by 1 October 1998. Please not that abstracts submitted by
e-mail or fax will not be accepted.
As in the past, the 1999 program will include lunch-time roundtable
workshops and may include poster session. Proposals for sessions of
three papers may be submitted, but each abstract will be judged and
accepted on its own merits. Those wishing to submit abstracts for these
sessions should follow the instructions given above.
