CFP: Medicine and Healing in the Age of Slavery

The History Department at Rice University invites proposals for a two-day symposium on the history of Medicine and Healing in the Age of Slavery. In the last three decades, scholars have increasingly identified connections between slavery and medicine. They have uncovered how medical theories and practices helped to reinforce the institution of slavery, just as enslaved people used their knowledge of healing to gain autonomy and power.

SYMPOSIUM: Paradigms of Change in Modernising Asia and America (October 13-14, Gent, Belgium)

Between the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century, the terminology of change belonging to the European intellectual tradition—composed of terms that constitute milestones in the historiographical account of societal, historical and political development such as modernity, revolution, renaissance, enlightenment, progress, evolution, etc.—has been substantially reinterpreted and re-signified outside of Europe.
