Upcoming series: Climate and Health

Currently, we are seeking submissions for a series on the theme of ‘Climate and Health.’

Blog posts might explore any aspect of the relationship between climate and health, including changing patterns of disease under different climatic conditions, measurements of health and climate, historical conceptions of the climate-sensitive body, and the development of public health measures to estimate and mitigate the impact of climate change on health.

We welcome papers from colleagues working in history, sociology, anthropology and elsewhere in the humanities, as well as from researches in the sciences of climate and health interested in addressing a broader audience. There are no restrictions to particular geographical locations.

If you are interested in contributing to REMEDIA for this themed series or to showcase your research on another subject, please send an email to Lisa Haushofer and Kate Womersley at with a short description of your proposed topic, argument, and sources, by October 1st, 2017.

For more information, see our guidelines for contributors.



While our content is mostly organized as themed issues, we also welcome suggestions, pitches, and contributions at any point during the year.
