Colloquium on the History of Psychiatry and Medicine call for Autumn 2014 speakers

By , January 13, 2014

We would like your suggestions of topics and speakers for the Colloquium on the History of Psychiatry and Medicine in the fall of 2014.

The Colloquium is sponsored by the Center for the History of Medicine, Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and the McLean Hospital Department of Postgraduate and Continuing Education.  It offers an opportunity for researchers in the history of psychiatry, medicine, and science to present informally, including work in progress, to a small group of clinicians, researchers, and others interested in the historical context of their work. We are unable to fund an honorarium or travel epenses.  We do offer an informal setting where work in progress can be offered and receive constructive contributions, rather than the formal presentation of a polished paper.  The discussion is usually lively and the audience appreciative. A list of past speakers and topics is attached for perspective.

The Colloquium is usually held from 4:00 to 5:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month in the fall at the Harvard Medical School. It consists of 45-60 minute presentation followed by 30-45 minutes of discussion.

If you have suggestions regarding speakers and topics you think would be interesting for the Colloquium or if you are interested in presenting in the Colloquium, please contact David G. Satin, M.D., Director, Colloquium on the History of Psychiatry and Medicine, david_satin@hms.harvard.edu.
