Making Race, Making Health

Tue, November 11, 2008

We would like to invite you to the upcoming conference, "Making Race, Making Health: Historical Approaches to Race, Medicine, and Public Health," which will be held at the Thompson Conference Center, Nov. 13-15. We have an exciting group of scholars coming to the conference from other universities inside and outside of the U.S.

The conference opens with a keynote talk by Prof. David Oshinsky, along with a reception, on Thursday evening. It then continues all day Friday and Saturday. We invite you to register for the entire conference (which includes breakfasts and lunches) or attend a single session.

On Tuesday, Nov. 11, we will be discussing a dissertation chapter on the architecture of migrant labor camps in Texas by Making Race, Making Health presenter Veronica Martinez. We're scheduling a lunch meeting, so look out next week for the formal announcement in order to RSVP and reserve your delicious, free, lunch.
