BRITISH SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2004 Liverpool Hope University College 25-27 June 2004
BSHS 2004 will be held in Liverpool, European Capital of Culture 2008. Papers are invited on all areas of the history of science, technology and medicine. Suggestions for themed sessions are particularly welcome. BSHS subsidies are available for student members of the Society. The meeting will also include the EGM.
The history of Liverpool Hope University College stretches back over a century and a half, when the Church of England Diocese of Chester and the Roman Catholic Sisters of Notre Dame established separate teacher education Colleges for women. The Colleges joined in an ecumenical federation in 1980.
Hope at Everton, a lively area of the city and home to Hope’s School of Creative and Performing Arts, will host BSHS 2004. En-suite accommodation is available on-site at Gerard Manley Hopkins Hall. The site is ten minutes’ walk from Liverpool city centre.

The world-famous Albert Dock incorporates the Tate Gallery, the Maritime Museum and the Beatles Story while visitors can also take a ferry ‘cross the Mersey from the nearby Pier Head. Famous venues include the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, the Royal Court Theatre and the Walker Art Gallery.
