Dora Vargha’s forthcoming talk, ‘After the End of Polio: Local and Global Consequences of Disease Elimination’, is open for scholars anywhere to participate online. The talk will take place at the next meeting of the Medicine and Health Working Group of the Consortium for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine on Friday, April 15, at 3.30 ET. Daniel Wilson (Mulhenberg College) will provide commentary.
The discussion text is now up on the Medicine and Health working group site. The History of Medicine and Health Working Group of the Consortium for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine meets monthly to discuss a colleague’s work in progress or to discuss readings that are of particular interest to participants.
Scholars anywhere can participate online. There are two opportunities to participate face-to-face. At the Consortium offices in Philadelphia, 431 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106, and at the New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue (@ 103rd Street), New York, NY 10029. The Philadelphia and New York meetings are patched in by teleconference, as are singleton scholars.
To participate online, you will need formally to join the working group; to do so, please contact Nancy Tomes at Stony Brook University, Keith Wailoo at Princeton University or Paul Theerman at the New York Academy of Medicine, or contact the Consortium at email@example.com.
