Bodies and Minds, Sickness and Soundness
June 13-14, 2019
University of Bristol
The 2019 SSHM PG conference committee welcomes papers on any topic within the discipline of the social history of medicine and particularly encourage proposals for papers and panels that critically examine or challenge some aspect of the history of medicine and health. We welcome a range of methodological approaches, geographical regions, and time periods.
Proposals should be based on new research from postgraduate students currently registered in a University programme. Paper submissions should include a 250-word abstract, including five key words and a short bio. Panel submissions should feature three papers, a chair, and a 100-word panel abstract.
For postgraduate students not currently funded through an existing fellowship or grant, funding is available through the SSHM to help offset the costs associated with travel and accommodation. Upon acceptance of a paper, requests for bursaries should be submitted to the Executive Secretariat prior to the conference. More information can be found on our website.
All postgraduate delegates must register (or already be registered) as members of the Society for the Social History of Medicine. For more information about SSHM student membership, please see the journal subscription site.
In addition to showcasing the latest postgraduate research, the conference will feature training workshops led by members of the SSHM Executive Committee.
To propose a paper or a panel, please visit our conference website at: https://sshmpgconference2019.
Call for papers closes on 31 January 2019.
