We are pleased to announce that the 2nd Portuguese -Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine (2LBMHTM) will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, 14-16 October 2015. It is organized by the Interuniversity Center for the History of Science and Technology (CIUHCT) and the Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (IHMT) of the New University of Lisbon, the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ), Brazil, and the Centre for Global Health Histories (CGHH), of the University of York.The Portuguese-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.
The Scientific Committee encourages contributions on a range of themes addressing the following topics:
1. Medical knowledge and practices: plural histories and traditions
2. Actors, pathogenic agents, diseases, and institutions
3. International public health policies and networks
4. Archives and museums: documents and collections
5. Tropical medicine and the environment
6. Tropical medicine and bioethics
The 2nd Portuguese-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 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 in the light of each region’s socioeconomic, political, and administrative peculiarities, as well as power correlations between markets, nation states and international agencies.
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.
