This online workshop aims to bring together early career researchers to share their research into the history of colonial medical education. While the application is open to all, the committee particularly encourages those focusing on the 18th-19th century British and French Empires. It will prioritise research projects based on archives in colonies or former colonies. The workshop will take the format of discussions of pre-circulated, short papers (drafts) prepared by all participants. We plan to publish a selection of workshop papers as a special issue in a peer-reviewed journal.
Possible topics may be:
– The establishment of medical schools in colonies
– Interactions between metropoles and colonies in medical education
– Teaching personnel involved in medical education
– Medical curricula
– Structures and architecture of imperial medical schools
– Accounts of student population
– Comparative studies of medical education between colonies and/or empires
Participants will be asked to submit drafts of research in English to participate in the workshop. Applications for the workshop, however, may be sent in either English or French. They should include a title, 300 word abstract, and institutional affiliation, and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com no later than 1 March 2021.Contact Info:

50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PUBLICATION OF RICHARD S. DUNN’S SUGAR AND SLAVES: THE RISE OF THE PLANTER CLASS IN THE ENGLISH WEST INDIES, 1624-1713
2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of one of the foundational books in the writing of Caribbean and Atlantic history. Richard S. Dunn’s highly evocative work opened up an entire field of study. Since its publication, historians have both deepened our understanding of subjects first developed in Dunn’s work and, inspired by Dunn’s scholarship, turned to new topics entirely.
We call on scholars with an interest and expertise in the areas covered by Sugar and Slaves to submit proposals for selection as papers to be presented at a workshop (held remotely) in summer 2021, tentatively scheduled for June 28-29. Papers should engage the period and region of Dunn’s study—the seventeenth-century Caribbean—while showcasing innovative scholarship and new directions in the field. Our ambition is that some of these papers will be published in a special issue of Early American Studies in 2022, and these essays will need to be ready for submission for peer review at the journal by August 15, 2021.
Anyone interested in making a proposal along the lines indicated above should send a 500-word proposal and brief cv to Alison Games (email@example.com) and Trevor Burnard (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15 March 2021. We will be in touch about details of a workshop on Sugar and Slaves by 1 April 2021. Contact Email: email@example.com
