Hannover History Section of the German Veterinary Medical Society – 18th Annual Conference and Methodology Seminar

BerlinConference

During the 61st Annual DVG-Vet-Kongress in Berlin 12-15 of November 2015 there will also be a conference in veterinary history. The history conference is arranged by the History Section of the German Veterinary Medical Society and the Department of History of the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover and takes place 13 and 14 of November at Estrel Convention Center. There will also be a Methodology Seminar during the conference.

Two main themes have been chosen: “Role and importance of veterinary medicine in society” andSilent witnesses: Veterinary medicine and museology.” 

The cover picture of the Call for Papers depicts a synthesis of both themes: “La folie du Jour!”, ‘The madness of the day!’ is the title given to this empire engraving housed in the Veterinary Historical Museum of the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover. The caricature shows physicians who presumably after giving an enema to the lady of the house also give her lapdog an enema, a satire on veterinary medicine, which was emerging at the beginning of the 19th century.
