The III Luso-Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine + XXIII Brazilian Congress on the History of Medicine

May 2018

“Medicine and environment: connections and challenges in the past, present, and future.” This is the shared theme of the III Luso-Brazilian Meeting on the History of Tropical Medicine and the XXIII Brazilian Congress on the History of Medicine (CBHM), which will be held November 5-9, 2018, at the School of Health Sciences at Amazonas State University (UEA) in Cachoeirinha, Manaus, Brazil.

The objective of the event is to discuss the history of diseases, particularly those characterized as “tropical” or “neglected,” and the history of the institutions and health policies seen from the point of view of their environmental determinants.

Four lines of reflection are featured: the production and circulation of knowledge and medical practices for control, prevention and treatment in national, colonial, and post-colonial contexts; transnational and trans-imperial networks through which actors, knowledges, protocols, specimens, and pathogens circulated; interventions on the environment and their effects on contact between populations, parasites, and vectors; and bioethical positions on medicine and environment in the fields of public health and the development of science, technology, and medicine.

Registration open until July 30, 2018.
