Medical Heritage Library Conference 2020
Abstract Submission Form

Due September 18, 2020

The Medical Heritage Library 2020 Conference is online event celebrating a decade of digitizing primary resources in the history of medicine. It will take place on Friday November 13, 2020.

The Medical Heritage Library 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 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. 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.
