What are the metrics and meanings that describe health: for individuals, communities, institutions, governments, economies, cultures, ecosystems, .. Read more epistemologies, or philosophies? The WHA invites teachers, scholars, and activists to reflect broadly on the many possible meanings of health, to both include and transcend bodily and biomedical applications of the term in order to consider the health of our world and the history of our planet that brings us to a online conference July 5–11, 2021. Our world has radically altered since the WHA’s canceled conference in 2020. The urgency of global public health crises, economic hardship, famine and food insecurity, political instability, ongoing violence, and environmental disasters demand immediate attention and invite measured analysis over long time horizons—a move along temporal scales at which world historians excel. As always, the program committee invites papers and panels on aspects of world history that do not directly address the conference theme. Pre-recorded sessions will be due on June 1, 2021. Pre-recorded sessions will be published by June 15, 2021, so that conference participants can view them and incorporate their insights into the live sessions in July.
