We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for our 2 day multi--‐disciplinary conference ‘Prison Medicine: Health and Incarceration in History’ covering the broad areas of museums, nursing, medical services, health, allied and mental health. Researchers, scholars, historians, policy makers, doctors, nurses and other stakeholders are welcome to submit an original research paper or presentation on the theme of the history of health and health services in prisons.
We invite responses to this theme in a variety of formats: formal papers (20 minutes long), panels (75 minutes long including 15 minutes for Q and A), posters, and flash presentations (5 minute presentations in which a speaker describes an area of research). We recognise that diverse issues have been involved in the provision of health and health services to prisoners over time, and we welcome conference participants to contribute to mapping the history of medical service provision to this vulnerable community.
