Conformity, Dialogue and Deviance in Health and Medicine Liverpool, 11-13 July 2018
Hosted by The Centre for the Humanities and Social Sciences of Health, Medicine and Technology at the University of Liverpool
The Society for the Social History of Medicine hosts a major, biennial, international, and interdisciplinary conference, and from 11-13 July 2018 it will meet in Liverpool to explore the theme of ‘Conformity, Resistance, Dialogue and Deviance in Health and Medicine’.
This broad theme plays on several levels. It reflects local Liverpool health heritage as a site of public health innovation; independent and at times radical approaches to health politics, health inequalities, health determinants, treatment and therapies (including technological innovation, community and collective practices, and the use of arts in health).
