Subject: CFP Medical Heritage Library 2020 Conference Good afternoon, I am writing to share a call for papers for an upcoming conference on digital collections in the field of medicine and society. Interested scholars are invited to submit an abstract and bio by September 18, 2020. Please see the details below, and refer to our website (http://www.medicalheritage.org/10th-anniversary-conference/) for additional information. The Medical Heritage Library, Inc. is hosting an online conference to celebrate a decade of digitizing primary resources in the history of medicine on Friday November 13, 2020. The Medical Heritage Library (http://www.medicalheritage.org/) is a digital curation collaborative among some of the world's leading medical libraries. The conference seeks to highlight research, teaching, and learning outcomes for our open-access collection of texts, films, images, and audio material in medical and health sciences and related subject matter. These materials represent a wide range of historical periods, linguistic traditions, and scientific cultures, and we encourage proposals that reflect the scope of our medical heritage collections. We seek to forge new relationships and strengthen existing ones with scholars, educators, and allied health professionals, in medical humanities, digital humanities, library and information science, medical history, art history, critical race studies, cultural studies, disability studies, philosophy, and bioethics. We invite proposals on a range of topics related to our collections, including, but not limited to: Affect management and practitioner burnout Collections as data Disability studies and medicine History of sexuality Local and indigenous medical knowledge Lung disease and cigarette smoking Medical museums Medicine and the arts Medicine and literature Patient experience(s) Public health Race science and medicine State medical societies Teaching the pandemic(s) Vaccines and anti-vaccination Women and medicine We ask that proposals reference at least one work digitized by the Medical Heritage Library, or discuss how the collections informed the research behind the presentation. Please see our website at www.medicalheritage.org and our Internet Archive collections archive.org/details/medicalheritagelibrary for more details. We welcome proposals of non-traditional presentation formats, such as workshops, lightning talks, collaborative discussions, digital demonstrations, and creative performances, as well as traditional academic papers and panels. Please submit an abstract of 300 words or less and a bio of 100 words or less through our abstract submission form by September 18, 2020: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf6rI5YDTN2Jc-xNY3WGIUdyKGufP6cCptXkOgQPeyAya5G6A/viewform Make sure to note the intended form of your contribution, and provide an email contact for all authors. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to reading your submissions.
