        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 
 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:

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
conference.mhl@gmail.com. We look forward to reading your submissions.
