“From the Cradle to the Grave: Future perspectives on the Social History of Health and Healthcare”. The Society for the Social History of Medicine will be holding its postgraduate student conference for those working in all fields of the History of Medicine/Health/Healthcare subject area in Jan 2006 in Glasgow.
With the growth of social history of medicine research in the UK over the last twenty-five years, the subject area has expanded in terms of methodological perspectives, geographical interests and chronological coverage. This conference seeks to explore the ways in which these developments have shaped current doctoral research. The broader objective is to stimulate a dialogue among emerging scholars in the social history of medicine community about the origins of the subject area, its current preoccupations and possible directions. The conference will be hosted at Glasgow Caledonian and Strathclyde Universities by the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare, Glasgow (http://www.gcal.ac.uk/historyofhealth/index.html) and will be held on
11/12 January. Please see http://www.strath.ac.uk/Departments/History/conf/home.htm for details.
