Call for Papers: special issue on NEW TRENDS IN THE HISTORIOGRAPHY OF MEDICINE
Deadline for paper submission: July 31th, 2017.
Publication of the issue: December, 2017.
We are expecting to receive submissions related to the new methodological approaches and the new objects that have been recently explored in the field of the history of medicine. These submissions can either propose a kind of meta-analysis of a new field of studies in the history of medicine (such as «global health», relation between medicine and gender or race studies, history of pharmacology, health and environment, history of medicine in Africa etc.), or propose some epistemological analysis on new methodological approaches that have emerged in these last decades (such as the articulation of ethnography and historical methods, the historical epistemology applied to medical history, the relevance of visual studies to the history of medicine etc.). Papers applying an original methodology to a specific object or historical materials are especially welcomed, as papers trying to embrace the development of an emergent field of researches in the area of history of medicine.
We are also expecting book reviews relevant for the above thematic.
In addition to English articles, Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science accepts articles in French, Portuguese and Spanish for evaluation, but after approval for publication the author should send the final version in English.
Submissions must be received by July 31th, 2017 via the webpage of the Journal, so they can be considered for theDecember 2017 issue. Submissions must be prepared for double blind review.
