Description

The History of Health Sciences includes a large number of interdisciplinary studies, from the origin of man to the present. Our proposition is to focus on the period that goes from Pre-history to the end of the Second World War (1939-1945), years that are of the upmost importance for the historiography of sciences, in general, and health in particular.
In partnership with CITCEM, CIDH - Chair Infante Dom Henrique for Atlantic Insular Studies and Globalization Aberta University, the Museum of Pharmacy, the Centre of Lusophone and European Literatures and Cultures and the European Institute of Culture Sciences Pe. Manuel Antunes it is intended the presentation of several studies within an ample chronology, capturing the interest of the Portuguese public and of young academics in this area and promoting an ample debate with the aim of potentiating scientific interdisciplinarity.
In summary, the 1st edition of the Symposium on the History of Health Sciences subordinated to the theme PHÁRMAKON – From the combat of infirmity to the invention of immortality we have the intention to generate a space in which, united by a generalizing theme that encapsulates a whole world of disciplines, we can study man in all its complexity.
