Call for Papers

The International Seminar Social Vulnerabilities and Health has as its theme: "Epidemics: an interdisciplinary analysis". It therefore aims to discuss issues associated with epidemics, not only the current pandemic of Covid-19, but also other pandemics and epidemics that have plagued the world, or part of human history. In this 3rd edition, taking advantage of the fact that the event has to be held online, for thematic panels, in addition to prestigious national speakers, several foreign speakers were invited in order to enrich and give the seminar an international perspective. We expect that the quality of the invited speakers allow increasing participation of new authors, national and international, with communications in the thematic areas of the workshop, increasing the sharing of experiences and knowledge that this seminar has provided since the first edition.
This seminar is conceived as a space for interdisciplinary debate between History, other Social Sciences and Health, about the issues in question, their actors and the social and political intervention around them. We therefore invite the participation of researchers and other professionals from various fields of knowledge, national and foreign, to share their research and / or intervention practices in this event. All completed papers, after review, will be published in an e-book corresponding to the proceedings.
