Call for Papers

Deadline: Wednesday November 14th 2007

The next British Society for the History of Science (BSHS) postgraduate conference will be hosted by the Division of the History and Philosophy of Science in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Leeds, from Thursday 3rd to Saturday 5th January 2008. The annual BSHS postgraduate conference is an opportunity for postgraduates, from the UK and abroad, researching in the history of science, technology and medicine, and related fields, to present their research. It provides a valuable chance to present and discuss work in a friendly and receptive environment, and also is a great chance to make contacts and develop friendships within the postgraduate community.

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, so time for presentations will be restricted to no more than twenty minutes. Please send a brief abstract (not more than 300 words) to the organisers (by email — see below), before the deadline of 14th November 2007. 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.

To submit an abstract, or if you have any queries, please get in touch by email: [email protected]

Many thanks, Leeds BSHS PG 2008 Committee
