Call for Proposals
ASBH 13th Annual Meeting
October 13-16, 2011
The American Society for Bioethics and Humanities‘ 13th Annual Meeting is scheduled for
October 13-16, 2011, in Minneapolis, MN at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Sleeping rooms at
the Hyatt can be secured at the ASBH group rate of $199 beginning in August. Reservations will
be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
The theme for the 2011 ASBH annual conference –“Generation(s) and Transformation(s)”–
invites participants to explore and analyze all aspects of the concepts of “generation”—from
pediatrics to geriatrics, as well as generative and regenerative practices in medicine—and
“transformation,” from a focus on the changing landscape of healthcare reform to the
development of cutting-edge technologies. The medical humanities and bioethics have
themselves played a role in generating new ideas and transforming practices within healthcare.
Further, both disciplines now have “generations” of practitioners, complete with such issues as
generational change/conflict/collaboration and legacies. We invite scholars in the medical
humanities and bioethics to submit papers, panels, and workshops that examine not only
healthcare practices involving patients young and old, but also explore generation(s) and
transformation(s) in light of policy implications, education of learners at all levels, and critical
analysis of the disciplines of medical humanities and bioethics.
Proposals must be submitted by March 1, 2011. For all the details, you can find the entire CFP here.
Graduate students should also note that the ASBH has a “Student Paper Competition”. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2011, and the details on the competition can be found by following the CFP link above.
