“What are you historically classified as?” Reflections of an Historian in Health Sciences in a Time of Transformation

Monday 4 October 2021, 12.15PM

Speaker(s): Carla Tsampiras (Cape Town)

Carla Tsampiras will speak on ‘”What are you historically classified as?” Reflections of an Historian in Health Sciences in a Time of Transformation.’

This seminar will run as part of the ‘Doing History’ events series, led by AboutFace York in affiliation with the Centre for Global Health Histories.

The discipline of History has changed radically over recent decades, as insights from other fields and interdisciplinary approaches have become more mainstream. Core questions remain, especially in light of Black Lives Matter, and related political and social movements that show how important and influential representations of the past can be in the present.

In connection with the Centre for Global Health Histories, AboutFace will hold a webinar featuring presentations on the broad question of ‘Doing History’, exploring methodological and epistemological questions about how we research, write and communicate History as an academic, societal and political endeavour. This webinar has an interdisciplinary and international outlook.

The webinar will be held online via Zoom.
