Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine

Institute of the History of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University

October 3-4, 2014


The Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine (JASMed) is an annual gathering of early career historians of medicine and public health, coordinated by graduate students.

Founded in 2002 by Prof. Harry Marks with students from Hopkins, Yale and Harvard, the first JASMed conference was held at Hopkins in 2003. Harvard, University of Pennsylvania, Yale, Rutgers and Columbia also have hosted JASMed conferences over the past twelve years. Our mission is to foster a collegial intellectual community and to provide a forum for sharing and critiquing graduate research among peers.

This year’s conference is being coordinated by graduate students in the Johns Hopkins History of Medicine Department. We welcome all participants and hope to expand our conversations to include participants from more institutions and different disciplinary backgrounds!

Details about the conference can be found on this website, but if you have any questions please contact this year’s Chair, Kirsten Moore, via the conference email:
