APPROACHES TO THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE

DISCUSSING METHODOLOGY


A one-day workshop for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers hosted by the Centre for the History of Medicine, University of Warwick.

 

Friday, 19 January 2007

 
10 – 5.30

Centre for the History of Medicine

There is no charge to attend this workshop – lunch and coffee breaks will be provided, and there will be a wine reception afterwards.

 

Individual sessions will be led by established academics exploring current and developing methodologies in the history of medicine. We hope that the day will provide opportunities for informal but in-depth discussion.

 

All sessions will take the form of discussion sessions – suggested readings will be circulated in advance, and speakers will present for around 20 - 30 minutes, leaving 30 – 40 minutes for questions and discussion.
