************************Call for Papers********************************

The Chinese Journal of Social History of Medicine and Health is organising a special themed issue on the history of hospitals over time. The issue will be edited jointly by Professor Jonathan Reinarz (Birmingham) and Dr Fanxiang Min (Nanjing). The journal is interested in articles between 8,000-10,000 words in length. These may be sweeping surveys of particular periods (medieval, early modern, modern), or chart recent work in particular national contexts, but also map out new directions and themes in hospital history, from architecture and funding to colonial and comparative contexts. Please send one page abstracts to Jonathan Reinarz (j.reinarz@bham.ac.uk) by 30 April 2017.
