The postgraduate students of QMUL, Centre for the History of the Emotions, invite postgraduates working in the history of medicine around the country to participate in a one-day Summit. This Summit builds on the success of the first Postgraduate History of Medicine Summit held at Warwick University last year.

Our aims are:

·         To develop and strengthen the UK’s Postgraduate History of Medicine Network

·         To create an opportunity for postgraduates in the field to share their research

·         To make plans for future Summits

In the morning, delegates will give 10-15 minute presentations on their research in small working groups. After lunch, there will be an Open Space forum to discuss the role of postgraduate students in the History of Medicine and the future of the Summit.

Lunch, refreshments and drinks will be provided.

Registration is free, but places are limited. To reserve your place, please contact Jade Shepherd, on [email protected]. Bursaries may be available for students travelling from outside London.

If you would like to present your research, please submit a brief statement of 50-100 words on the subject of your talk, including your name, institution and the year of your degree, by email to Jade Shepherd by the 25th April 2011.
