The International Network for the History of Hospitals (INHH) and ‘Hospitalis: Hospital Architecture in Portugal at the Dawn of Modernity’ and ‘Royal Hospital of All Saints: city and public health’ research projects are pleased to announce the call for papers for Space and the Hospital. The conference will take place in Lisbon, Portugal from 26-28 May 2021.
Space, in both its physical and conceptual manifestations, has been a part of how hospitals were designed, built, used, and understood within the wider community. By focusing on space, this conference aims to explore this subject through the lens of its architectural, socio-cultural, medical, economic, charitable, ideological, and public conceptualisations.
