The BSHS Postgraduate Conference is an annual event, with recent meetings held in London, Leeds, Canterbury, Durham, Brighton, Cambridge, Manchester, Warwick, and Oxford.

Postgraduates in all areas of the history of science, technology and medicine throughout the world are welcome to attend and give papers.

Each conference is organised entirely by postgraduates from the host institution, and provides an ideal opportunity to meet fellow researchers and gain valuable early conference experience.

The event is subsidised by the BSHS, which normally provides half the accommodation costs of delegates.

Forthcoming: BSHS Postgraduate Conference 2018

The 2018 BSHS postgraduate conference will take place at the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), University of Manchester, from 4-6 April 2018. Check out the details here.
