The annual conference of the Society for the Social History of Medicine will take place in Glasgow this year, sponsored by the Wellcome Trust. It will run between the 3-5 September. The broad theme of the SSHM2008 event is the value of historical perspectives on issues relating to medicine, health and healthcare. As such, it encourages papers from all periods and all places to encourage a wide-ranging and inclusive meeting that reflects the diversity of the history of medicine subject area. The event will be jointly hosted by the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow and the Centre for the History of Medicine at Glasgow University.

Do consider submitting an abstract of no more than 300 words to the conference administrator ([email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> ) by the deadline of 31 March. Further details of the event, and news of registration and accommodation can be found on the websites below.
