Call for Papers
British Society for the History of Science Annual Conference 2017
6-9 July 2017, University of York

The BSHS Annual Conference will take place from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 July 2017 at the University of York.

The Conferences Committee now invites proposals for individual papers and for sessions from historians of science, technology and medicine, and from their colleagues in the wider scholarly community, on any theme, topic or period. Proposals are welcomed from researchers of all nationalities at all stages of their careers. Participation is in no way limited to members of the Society, although members will receive a discount on the registration fee.

All enquiries about the programme arrangements should be addressed to [email protected].

Proposals for individual papers should include an abstract of no more than 250 words, be comprehensible to a non-specialist audience and avoid footnotes. Sessions, of either ninety minutes or two hours, should normally consist of three or four papers. They may also have a commentator. Proposals for alternative types of session, such as ‘round-tables’, are strongly encouraged. Please discuss your ideas for such alternative sessions well in advance of the submission deadline.

To submit a paper or session proposal, please visit our dedicated CFP page. The deadline for proposals is 19 January 2017.
