Life History Research Society Biennial Meeting

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania May 7th-10th 2014

The 2014 Life History Research Society Meeting will be held in Pittsburgh, PA, May 7th - May 10th

The Life History Research Society is an informal, multi-disciplinary group of scholars who are pursuing prospective longitudinal research examining various aspects of human development. The unifying theme of this society is the longitudinal research approach: the study of human development across time. Studies range from examining a population over the course of a year to multi-generational studies examining relationships between grandparents, parents, and their children. The focus of the longitudinal programs of research varies widely, from delinquency and criminality to various psychosocial (i.e. happiness, financial autonomy), life-transition (i.e. puberty, retirement, etc), and health-related outcomes (i.e. internalizing behaviors).

The society has been having meetings for over three decades at approximately 18 month intervals at different international venues. The objectives of these conferences are to (1) share information that will advance the study of human development and influence the next generation of longitudinal studies, (2) promote multidisciplinary research and interdisciplinary dialogue/collaboration around a common theme, and (3) foster communication between senior and junior researchers, and researchers and students.

Life History Research Society meetings attract researchers from around the world.  The nature of the meeting and of the scholars who have been part of the Life History Research Society make it a rare opportunity for longitudinal researchers from different disciplines and different countries to come together to discuss common problems and successes.  Sessions focus on new research relating to antisocial behavior, mental and physical health, and psychosocial development, as well as methodologies, statistical analyses and problems specific to longitudinal research.

Quarantine: History, Heritage, Place

Quarantine: History, Heritage, Place

14-16 August 2014

An international conference convened by historians, archaeologists and heritage scholars at the University of Sydney

The Quarantine Station, Sydney, Australia

The practice of quarantine has always been grounded in contested locations. The history and heritage of quarantine stations and places of isolation the world over remain in these landscapes, as built environments and in artefacts. In this way, sites of segregation have been both enduring and ephemeral. These vestiges intersect in powerful ways with memory and history, but what is being invoked? Who – or what – were the actors bound up by quarantine regulations? How can the material, documentary, legislative and spatial heritage of quarantine help us untangle narratives of global movement that were interrupted by incarceration?

Encompassing people and pathogens, vectors and vessels, flora and fauna, this conference seeks new interpretations of the place of quarantine. Moving in scale from intimate marks made by internees to multi-site or cross-regional comparisons, we seek to bring together maritime histories of quarantine with analyses of the inland islands of terrestrial quarantine. Above all, we hope to prompt surprising and productive conversations between archaeologists, historians, cultural and human geographers, and heritage scholars.

This international conference builds from a large multidisciplinary investigation of more than 1,000 sandstone inscriptions that cover the stunning Quarantine Station in Sydney, Australia. This unique site will form our venue for the conference, inspiring themes that are both local and global: mark-making, isolation, identity, and place.

Society for the Social History of Medicine 2014 Conference

Disease, Health and the State

10-12 July 2014 Oxford, United Kingdom

The Centre for Health, Medicine and Society: Past and Present, Oxford Brookes University and the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, University of Oxford

The Society for the Social History of Medicine hosts a major, biennial, international, and interdisciplinary conference. In 2014 it will explore the relationships between health, disease, and the state. Responses to disease and concerns about health contributed to the development of the state, yet disease and medicine have also challenged and disrupted state authority. The biennial conference is not exclusive in terms of its theme, and reflects the broad diversity of the discipline of the social history of medicine.

Conference Organizers: Dr Katherine Watson, Dr Erica Charters
