Conference: European Association of Museums for the History of Medical Sciences (EAMHMS)

This is the second and last reminder for the15th biannual conference of the European Association of Museums for the History of Medical Sciences (EAMHMS) to be held in Copenhagen, 16-18 September, 2010.

The theme of this year’s conference is the challenge to museums posed by contemporary developments in medical science and technology.

How do museums today handle the material and visual heritage of contemporary medical and health science and technology? How do curators wield the increasing amount and kinds of more or less intangible scientific and digital objects? Which intellectual, conceptual, and practical questions does this challenge give rise to?
