Reminder: CFP 'Monarchy and Modernity, 1500-1945', University of Cambridge, 8-9 January 2019

The conference announced on the cfp below was originally designed for Europeanists, but was opened up to all world areas following multiple requests by non-Europeanists to participate. The cfp has therefore been revised and the deadline extended to August 15, 2018. Please note that all proposals previously submitted remain valid and, where applicable, accepted.

Query: archival fonds of institute of tropical diseases in the USSR?

Dear colleagues,

While my main forte is an entirely different subfield, I am looking for any clues about the archival fonds of Институт медицинской паразитологии и тропической медицины имени Марциновского (отдел профилактики тропических болезней) and кафедра тропических болезней Центрального Института Усовершенствования врачей, as well as any fonds that would likely have information about researchers working in the WHO as consultants on the behalf of the Soviet Union. Any hints will be useful.


Thank you,

Orel Beilinson
