Resources & Advice for Postgraduate Students in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine and Associated Disciplines


These pages are all about about sharing our collective knowledge and experiences with respect to postgraduate studies in HSTM and related fields – and we’re are always looking for more contributions! Please do get in touch if you have something to share, whether that be advice about using museum collections or a great resource you’ve come across in the course of your research. If you would like to express your interest in writing a c.750-word post or would like more information please contact the current BSHS Postgraduate Representative Jemma Houghton ([email protected]).

By sharing and signposting content, we hope to help maintain a welcoming and accessible community in the UK and abroad.
