Panel organization – Canadian Society for the History of Medicine 2013

A message from Kathryn McKay, PhD candidate at Simon Fraser University:

Hi H-Madness members,

We are organizing a panel for the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine (CSHM) conference to be held in Victoria, British Columbia June 1-3, 2013. We are looking for papers to complement two that broadly examine aspects of activism, patient rights, disability, and labour practices.

This conference attracts scholars from all time periods and disciplines and thus, feedback one receives can be both specific and broad. The conference occurs in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences which brings together academics from a wide range of disciplines. For more information you can visit their website at:

If you have research that you think would complete our panel, please contact us right away. The proposals require a 350 word abstract and a one page CV and will be submitted together as soon as we have a 3-4 participants. The submission is due on November 30th, so we would appreciate your proposal no later than November 23rd.

Thank you

Dustin Galer ( and Kathy McKay (
