Forthcoming Conferences and Workshops


‘Situating Medicine: New Directions’ Conference

5-6th June 2014

‘Situating Medicine: New Directions’ will interrogate the power of current medical, socio-cultural, political, and economic developments as intellectual springboards for historical investigation. Drawing on British, European and South Asian history, the conference will also examine and compare how medicine is changed in theory and in practice as it moves from one environment to another, between institutional sites, and in global, national and local contexts. ‘Situating Medicine: New Directions’ will highlight critical reflections on the rapid rise of the history of medicine as an academic discipline, and address its relationship and synergies with the medical humanities.
