British Society for the History of Science Postgraduate Conference

This annual 3-day event gives postgraduates in the history of science, technology and medicine a chance to get to know each other and to present their work to a wider audience. The conference is organised by and for postgraduates, aiming to offer the opportunity of presenting a fifteen minute paper in a supportive environment. Our aim is for postgraduates to convene from a wide range of universities and disciplines to discuss our common interests, share experiences and network in a friendly and receptive environment. Scientific and medical professionals with an interest in the history of their discipline are also more than welcome.

The programme will see parallel sessions of papers spanning all three days. There will be a drinks reception on Wednesday evening and a conference dinner on Thursday evening. Additional sessions will include an author/reviewer workshop held by the Publisher for Elsevier’s history and philosophy of science portfolio, including journals such as Studies in History and Philosophy of Science and Endeavour.
