The Society for the History of Navy Medicine invites proposals for papers to be presented at the 2021 McMullen Naval History Symposium on any topics related to maritime medicine. Proposals should include a one page vita and an abstract of no more than 250 words which summarizes the research and its contribution to historical knowledge, collated in a single Microsoft Word file. A Paper Selection Board will select three or four papers for presentation at the Society’s panel at the McMullen, which may be a virtual event. Proposal deadline: 01 February 2021. Email proposals to historyofnavymedicine@gmail.com by midnight. In the event of a physical symposium in Annapolis, the Society will provide travel grants of up to $850 for graduate students whose papers are accepted for presentation.
