Calling for Participants for Panel on Medicine in Britain

I'd like to create a panel for the Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies (PCCBS) annual meeting in Santa Barbara, CA on March 23-25, 2018. I am a PhD student in History, and will be talking about medicinal remedies found in British food manuscripts from the 18th century. I am looking for 2-3 additional papers relating to this topic. Ideally the panel would cover a broad chronological range, with some variations on the general theme (i.e., medicine at home, in the empire, during wartime, etc.). The conference organizers encourage interdisciplinary panels, so all relevant disciplines are welcome! If you are interested in participating, but do not have any specific research to present, we will also need a commentator/chair for the panel. 

Please submit abstracts/ideas to me by email by November 15th. This will give me time to review them and put together a full panel proposal before the PCCBS deadline of December 1st. 

For more information on the conference in general, please see: FYI, there is a possibility of financial help for graduate students through the Stern Trust. More information about this can be found on the PCCBS website. 

Thank you,

Elizabeth Schmidt
