XIII International Network for the History of Hospitals Conference
May, 26-28, 2021 | Lisbon

The Advisory Board of the INHH and the local organizer committee annouce the conference which will be held in Lisbon, May 26-28, 2021.

For more information:

Space, in both its physical and conceptual manifestations, has been a part of how hospitals were designed, built, used, and understood within the wider community. By focusing on space, this conference aims to explore this subject through the lens of its architectural, socio-cultural, medical, economic, charitable, ideological, and public conceptualisations.

This thirteenth INHH conference will explore the relationship between space and hospitals throughout history by examining it through the lens of five themes:
(1) ritual, space, and architecture;
(2) hospitals as ?model? spaces;
(3) the impact of medical practice and theory on space;
(4) hospitality and social space;
(5) sponsorship.

Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words in length, in English and accompanied by a brief biography of no more than 200 words. Proposals should be sent to by 30 September 2020. As with previous INHH conferences, it is intended that an edited volume of the conference papers will be published. Submissions are particularly encouraged from researchers who have not previously given a paper at an INHH conference. (CFP pdf)
