Abstract submissions

Abstract submissions have now closed.

Researchers, writers and scholars at all stages of their careers are invited to submit proposals for presentations at the 18th International Medical Geography Symposium. We particularly welcome diverse approaches to conventional fields of medical and health geography and new methodological and theoretical perspectives on health and wellbeing as well as interdisciplinary insights into people/place/space relationships and the outcomes for health and wellbeing.

Links between health, wellbeing, space, and place have typically been the starting point for analysis and interpretation for health and medical geographers. Within medical and health geography, we have seen an expanding focus from core concerns with disease ecology and the spatial distribution of health services to a socially and culturally attuned sub-discipline that also highlights the importance of people/place/space relationships in the experience of health and well-being. At this conference, we acknowledge the need for interdisciplinary perspectives to help create a world with better health outcomes for current and future generations. We seek diverse contributions from across the world and new theoretical and methodological perspectives that might enlarge our world.

We welcome abstracts for papers, posters, panels, and lighting talks. Please submit a 200-word abstract of your presentation by 8 February 2019.
