The 2020 meeting of the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine (CSHM) will take place May 30-June 1, 2020 at Western University, in London, Ontario, situated on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Attawandaron (Neutral) people, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and with the Dish with One Spoon Convenant Wampum. This year, in conjunction with the Congress theme of “Bridging Divides," scholars will present research on the broadly-defined histories of medicine, healing, health, and disease that explores conversations, debates, and dialogues on these themes at the local, provincial, national, and global levels. Papers and discussions will critically and creatively explore the experience and meaning of health and disease, the role played by health care practitioners, patients, society and the state, as well as various issues of class, race, gender, ethnicity and sexuality in theories and practices concerning health and medicine. This year, CSHM is pleased to announce that Professor Kim Anderson (The University of Guelph) will present the AMS Paterson Lecture in the history of medicine. Researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, students, and the public are welcome to register and attend. We hope to see you at Western!
