British Society for the History of Science Postgraduate Conference
January 4th –6th 2007
Call for Papers
Deadline: Wednesday November 8th 2006
The next British Society for the History of Science (BSHS) postgraduate conference will be hosted by the Department of Philosophy in collaboration with the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease at Durham University, from Thursday 4th to Saturday 6th January 2007. The annual BSHS postgraduate conference is an opportunity for postgraduates, from the UK and abroad, researching within the history of science, technology and medicine to present their research.
We welcome papers from all postgraduates working in History of Science, Technology and Medicine, and also those working in other disciplines whose research touches on any area of HSTM studies. We would like to offer as many postgraduates as possible the chance to present their papers, hence time for presentations will be restricted to no more than twenty minutes. Please send a brief abstract (not more than 350 words) to the organisers (see address as below), deadline 8th November 2006. The abstract should give a title and an outline of your paper, including methodology, sources and key questions of your research project. Please include your contact details and your institutional affiliation.
If you want to submit an abstract (an electronic copy is preferred), or have any further questions please do get in touch with a member of the organisation committee (Vicky Blake, Beth Hannon and Sebastian Pranghofer). Additional information on travel grants, venue and registration can be found on the conference web-page.
