Second Luso-Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine
The Luso-Brazilian Meetings on the History of Tropical Medicine have always sought to strike a balance between historiographical reflections, which help develop a broader comparative analysis, and case-studies examining different national, colonial, post-colonial, international and global contexts. We will continue to favor both approaches at the 1st meeting. The bulk of historiographical research has explored the period in the post-World War II. This meeting will work with a broader focus by examining the roles played by countries like Portugal, Brazil and Spain, and their connections with imperial and post-colonial research and practice.
The 2nd Luso-Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine welcomes proposals for individual papers, but preference will be given to organized sessions of three or more papers. We particularly invite contributions with a transnational dimension concerning the Historical analyses of the links between tropical medicine and international health in the post-World War II, in paying particular attention to ideas, exchanges, technologies and practices in Portuguese-African-Asian-Brazilian relations, notably by addressing the circulation of ideas and ideologies in the light of each region’s socioeconomic, political, and administrative peculiarities, as well as power correlations between markets, nation states and international agencies.
The Scientific Committee encourages contributions on a range of themes addressing the following topics:
- Medical knowledge and practices: plural histories and traditions
- Actors, pathogenic agents, diseases, and institutions
- International public health policies and networks
- Archives and museums: documents and collections
- Tropical medicine and the environment
- Tropical medicine and bioethic
The History of Tropical Medicine welcomes proposals for individual papers, but preference will be given to organized sessions of three or more papers.
All proposals should be submitted electronically via our website by 2 March 2015.
Presenters will be allotted 20 minutes and their papers may be delivered in Portuguese, and English. However, there will be no simultaneous translation.
If you have any questions related to the scientific programme, paper or session proposals, please, do not hesitate to contact Isabel Amaral (email@example.com) or Jaime Benchimol (firstname.lastname@example.org), the chairs of the programme committee.
