Call for Papers: Medicine and Poetry: From the Greeks to the Enlightenment

March 20th, 2015 University of Miami Coral Gables, Florida

Deadline for abstracts: October 3rd, 2014

From Homer’s depiction of wounds and Lucretius on plague and death to Erasmus Darwin’s rhymed verse portrayals of plants and zoology and beyond, poetic texts have reflected, disseminated, and actively engaged with contemporary ideas about medicine and the body. While scholarly work on poetry or the history and philosophy of science has long proceeded in parallel, the conjunction of the two remains understudied. With the recent surge of interest in medical Humanities and sub-topics such as narrative medicine and the verbal (in)articulation of bodily pain, the time is right to propose a conference investigating how medical knowledge is expressed, often by non-specialists, in poetry.

We invite abstracts for 20-minute papers on any aspect of the relationship between poetry and medical thought from Classical antiquity through the Enlightenment, including, but not limited to:

The depiction of psychic as well as physical suffering in the Homeric epics.

The appearance of technical medical terminology in 5th century BCE drama.

Representations of others’ bodies as afflicted or diseased as in, for example, Catullus.

Representations of the poet’s own body as afflicted or diseased as in, for example, Ennius, Horace, and Persius.

The healing function of poetry (e.g. paean songs or the therapeutic aim of Lucretius’ De rerum natura)

The medical or physiological character of poetic disposition (e.g. melancholy as a peculiarly salient trait of Romantic and other poets)

The reception of Classical medical poetics in post-Classical periods.

Narrative therapy as a way to make sense of death and disease.

Poetry as a distinctive or even necessary medium for the expression of medical knowledge.

Please submit your abstract of no more than 600 words by October 3rd, 2014, to the organizers:

Call for Abstracts: 3rd World Congress on Controversies, Debates and Consensus in Bone, Muscle and Joint Diseases

 April 23-26, 2015 Montreal, Canada

Deadline for submission of abstracts: Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

The 3rd World Congress on Controversies, Debates and Consensus in Bone, Muscle and Joint Diseases (BMJD) held under the auspices of the IOF and ESCEO, will take place April 23-26, 2015 in Montreal, Canada.

Over the years, the fields of bone, muscle and joint diseases have undergone enormous expansion in clinical and basic data, as well as that of field-related technology. With the problem of bone, muscle and joint diseases reaching epidemiological dimensions, treatment possibilities have digressed diversely. This development has created a need for debates and discussions on the numerous controversial issues to attain clinical conclusions.

The 3rd edition of BMJD aims to continue facilitating effective debates on unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas, supported by evidence-based medicine and expert opinions resulting in agreement on timely issues. The program provides an effective forum for discussing and debating such unresolved controversies by allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussions with world authorities in the fields of Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Pain, Muscles and Joint Diseases.

The 3rd BMJD Congress will be held under the auspices of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO), making an even greater impact on the scientific community.

Call for Abstracts: Ethics and Professionalism in Health Care. Backgrounds, Frameworks, Challenges

International conference for young scholars

9th – 13th February 2015 Institute for Medical Ethics and History of Medicine Ruhr University Bochum, Germany

Organisational, societal and ethical aspects in the transformation of health-care professions are currently the subject of intensive discussion. New forms and structures of interprofessional co-operation have been developed in a variety of fields, such as primary care, intensive-care medicine or palliative medicine. The academization of health-care professions and the emergence of new subspecialities generate a need for professional codes, legal regulations and new frameworks for health-care provision.

The interdisciplinary and international conference for young scholars aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines and fields to discuss topics regarding professionalism and interprofessionalism in health care. Contributions on the following subjects may be submitted:

• historical, ethical and societal aspects of the development of health-care professions

• transformation of health-care professions and the physician-patient relationship

• regulatory frameworks and models for interprofessional co-operation in health care

• learning and teaching medical professionalism

• interprofessional health-care education

• ethical challenges to health-care professionalism (e.g. corruption, conflicts of interest)

Young scholars (PhD students and Post Docs) from all health care-related disciplines (such as medicine, medical ethics, nursing science, public health, law, social sciences, history, and philosophy) are invited to present their research projects, to discuss them with leading experts and to contribute to the interdisciplinary discourse. In addition, all participants are invited to prepare a manuscript and to submit it for peer review and publication in a conference volume. Expenses for travel, accommodation and meals will be covered. In addition, all contributors to the book will receive a remuneration of 300 Euro.

Abstracts (approximately 250 words) along with a brief curriculum vitae may be submitted until 7th November 2014 via e-mail to Verena.Sandow@Rub.de.
