The aim of this conference, which will take place from March 23 to March 25 at Sorbonne University in Paris, France, is to study the general question of wellness and health, primarily in English-speaking countries, but it also welcomes comparative approaches in other countries or regions. This conference will attempt to shed light on the practices, principles, values or institutions which have had an impact on health and wellness, both from a strictly medical point of view and from a broader moral or social perspective.

The objective of the conference will be to try and trace the contours of wellness and health, both from a historical point of view and from more contemporary perspectives, in all their forms, be they artistic, sociological, political or economic, from modern times to the present day.

Proposals for papers (500 words maximum) in English or French, with a working title and a short bio, should be sent to HDEA2023@gmail.com  by 30 June 2022.
