The Workshop on the History of Tropical Medicine (WTM) organized by the Centre for Global Health and Tropical Medicine (GHTM) will take place at the IHMT, in Lisbon, on 14th and 15th December 2017, forming part of the celebrations of the institute’s 115th anniversary.
The WTM wishes to provide a platform to further develop the debate and cast a critical eye on the historiography of tropical medicine, privileging the presentation of new ideas, approaches and data on the field of tropical medicine in the broadest sense of the term over time from the late 1800s to the present. We welcome contributions that offer multi-, trans-disciplinary and comparative perspectives on the historiography of tropical medicine. We strongly encourage PhD and post-doc researchers to submit proposals, providing them with an opportunity for an informed and constructive debate on their research projects.
Submissions versed in English are invited to submit papers for oral presentations. Please provide title, an extended abstract (max. 500 words) and a short biographical note (max. 150 words with your institutional affiliation and e-mail) and submit your proposal by 15th September 2017 to the following e-mail address: workshopTMhistory@ihmt.unl.pt
For more information, please click here or send an e-mail to workshopTMhistory@ihmt.unl.pt.
We look forward to seeing you at the WTM!
