Series Description

The Proceedings of the Calgary History of Medicine Days can be seen as a Series in the History of Medicine and Health Care that publishes the work of young and emerging researchers in the field and hence provides a unique publishing format in North America. The annual Calgary History of Medicine Days Conferences, established in 1991, bring together undergraduate and early graduate students from across Canada, the United States, United Kingdom and Europe to give paper and poster presentations on a wide variety of topics from the history of medicine and health care in an interdisciplinary perspective. The History of Medicine Days offer an annual platform for discussions and exchanges between the participants over recent research findings, methodological perspectives, or work-in-progress descriptions of ongoing historiographical projects. A limited number of reviewed and edited conference papers are assembled in the annual volumes of the series, and may comprise topics from the history of health care systems, medical sciences, psychiatry and neuroscience, public health, or historical issues of gender in medicine. Each of the books in this peer-reviewed series of Proceedings Volumes from the Calgary History of Medicine Days conferences, published with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, further intend to include the manuscripts from internationally renowned keynote speakers from the history of health care, medicine, and science. The volumes furthermore comprise all of the abstracts of the respective conferences for documentation purposes and are well-illustrated with diagrams and images pertaining to the history of medicine. Some supplementary volumes (monographs/edited collections) may also appear sporadically in this History of Medicine Series.
