The Canadian Bulletin of Medical History/Bulletin canadien d’histoire de la medicine is proud to launch this award that honours the memory of Dr. Georgina Feldberg. Dr. Feldberg was a dedicated teacher and scholar of social history of medicine, public health, and the gendered politics of disease, who firmly believed that history has an important role to play in shaping public policy. The history of health and medicine community lost an important voice when Dr. Feldberg passed away far too young in 2010. You can read more about Dr. Feldberg as a scholar, wife, friend, and mentor in a collection of short reflections in CBMH/BCHM 37.1.

The CBMH/BCHM in cooperation with the CSHM/SCHM recognizes the important work of our student members and introduced this prize to bring more profile to the excellent contributions by history of health and medicine students. Students outside of history are welcome to submit essays that have a historical argument and engage with the historiography. Applicants must be registered students at a recognizable university at the time of submission.

The Georgina Feldberg Memorial Student Award will be granted to the best, unpublished essay, based on original research on any topic within the history of health and medicine, written in either French or English. Essays are not restricted by geography or time period, but must engage with a topic related to the history of health and/or medicine.

Winners of this annual award will receive $500 and a year’s membership with the CSHM/SCHM, which includes a subscription to the CBMH/BCHM.

The next deadline is January 31, 2021. Submission details and eligibility criteria are available in English and French.
