The 9th International Health Humanities Conference




Dear 9th International Health Humanities Conference participants,

Thank you for your participation in the conference, which was scheduled to end on November 15. We were delighted and impressed by the number, the quality, and the variety of presentations submitted, despite the adverse circumstances.

That said, we suspect that many of you feel that you have not had enough time, in the midst of busy schedules, to view all of the presentations you had hoped to, or to make full use of the Comments feature. For this reason, we are happy to inform you that we have decided to extend access to the videos and comments for one final week, until November 23 (JST, Japan time).

Presenters, please be sure to check the comments on your own presentation and reply to them if possible.

Warm Regards,

Jeffrey Huffman and Mami Inoue
Conference Co-chairs

Greetings to everyone during these trying times. It is clear enough at this point that international travel for conferences should continue to be avoided through the end of this year, at least. However, we have received many meaningful and excellent proposals, and many have commented on the continued and perhaps heightened importance of the health humanities in dealing with a global pandemic. Therefore, we have decided to move the conference to an online format. We plan to ask presenters to prepare videos of their presentations, which can be provided in an on-demand format (with discussion forum capabilities) to conference participants. We have also adjusted the participation fee for Categories B and C, in order to enable as much participation as possible. In the same vein, we have decided to extend the final Call for Papers until the end of June. So, if you were unable to attend because of the trip to Japan or to Tokyo, if you were waiting to see whether the conference would be cancelled or postponed, or if you are engaged in innovative new research or practice related to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, please, by all means, consider submitting a proposal this month. Together we can overcome this roadblock and make the first-ever online Health Humanities conference a great one!
