"Methods in Theory and Practice":
A Conference for Research Students in History of Medicine and Allied Sciences
25-26 June 2009 at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, London
Proposals for papers are invited addressing the relationship between theoretical, methodological and practical approaches to the historical study of medicine and the related sciences. In recent years historians have employed an increasing variety of methods but how does methodological theory translate into practice? To what extent are differing approaches complementary? And how might apparently contradictory approaches be reconciled?
Participants should demonstrate how a specific approach or set of approaches informs their own research. Papers are encouraged from all periods and places. Organizers hope to include papers from research students from a variety of disciplines and would especially welcome participants from outside the UK. Travel and accommodation bursaries are available.
Please send an abstract of not more than 200 words, together with the title of your proposed paper, your name and institution to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 March 2009.
Funded by the Wellcome Trust, Arts & Humanities Research Council, and the Royal Historical Society.
