Call for Papers
Date: 1 June 2013
Venue: Kingston University
There is a growing band of historians conducting prosopographical projects on topics relating to healthcare. The subjects of known projects span the centuries and the trades, from mediaeval to the 20th century, including nursing and medicine. A small group of nursing prosopographers (brought together originally through Katherine Keats-Rowan's excellent, but now mothballed, Centre for Prosopography at Oxford) has decided the time is right to convene a new group. This call for papers is to anyone who is, has been, or is thinking of working on the history of healthcare, using prosopography as an integral methodology. We plan to convene a workshop/conference to discuss current and future projects, share ideas and experiences. If you are interested in participating please send a short abstract (200 words) describing your project (or project idea) to arrive by 28 February 2013, to Sue Hawkins at firstname.lastname@example.org
Conveners: Sue Hawkins (Centre for the Historical Record, Kingston University); Carmen Mangion (Dept. History, Birkbeck College London; Helen Sweet, Wellcome History of Medicine Unit, Oxford University).
