Book Description

The Proceedings of the Calgary History of Medicine Days can be seen as a Series in the History of Medicine and Health Care that publishes the work of young and emerging researchers in the field, hence providing a unique publishing format. The annual Calgary History of Medicine Days Conference, established in 1991, brings together undergraduate and early graduate students from across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe to give paper and poster presentations on a wide variety of topics from the history of medicine and health care from an interdisciplinary perspective. The History of Medicine Days offers an annual platform for discussions and exchanges between participants over recent research findings, methodological perspectives, or work-in-progress descriptions of ongoing historiographical projects.

This book brings together a number of reviewed and edited conference papers, comprising topics from the history of health care systems, medical sciences, psychiatry and neuroscience, public health, and historical issues of gender in medicine. Furthermore, it includes the paper given by the conference’s internationally-renowned keynote speaker, Dr. Theodore M. Brown, Professor of History and Medical Humanities and Charles E. & Dale L. Phelps Professor of Public Health and Policy, University of Rochester, New York. It also comprises all of the abstracts of the conference for documentation purposes and is well illustrated with diagrams and images pertaining to the history of medicine.
