The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the social, political, cultural, and economic consequences of infectious disease control, shined a spotlight on the stark inequalities nurtured by US healthcare, and raised new questions that scholars will be grappling with for years to come. As historians adapt to this new context, this conference will provide a venue for postgraduate students and early career scholars to discuss the historical intersections between health, disability, state regulation, racialisation, and socioeconomic inequalities. 
Details of the conference and the call for papers are now available on the website, please submit abstracts by Friday 18th June:
