The American Institute of the History of Pharmacy and the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Pharmacy were pleased to host the virtual, New Social History of Pharmacy & Pharmaceuticals Festival. The Festival was a free online streaming event that ram from Thursday, September 24 through Tuesday, September 29, 2020.
The five-day interdisciplinary festival aimed to generate a discussion related to the under-explored social history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals. We hoped the contributed paper panels, books talks, and invited festival talks stimulated/connected new scholarship and placed a spotlight on emerging trends in the studies of pharmaceuticals, drugs, and alcohol more broadly.
