This volume is the third in a peer-reviewed series of Proceedings Volumes from the Calgary History of Medicine Days conferences, produced by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. The History of Medicine Days is a two day, national conference held annually at the University of Calgary, Canada, where undergraduate and early graduate students from across Canada, the US, UK, and Europe give paper and poster presentations on a variety of topics from the history of medicine and health care.The selected 2011 conference papers assembled in this volume particularly comprise insights into the histories of Women, Health and Reproduction, Institutes and Deinstitutionalization, the Brain, Mind, and Mindlessness, as well as a special section including Communications in the history of medicine. The 2011 keynote address was delivered by Dr George Weisz, the Cotton-Hannah Chair in the History of Medicine from the Department of Social Studies of Medicine at McGill University, Montréal. Dr Weisz's presentation, which paralleled his article “The Reinvention of Chronic Disease in the 20th Century”, is reprinted in the current volume with permission from the author and editors of the American Journal of Public Health. This volume also includes the abstracts of all 2011 conference presentations and is well-illustrated with diagrams and images pertaining to the history of medicine.
