BSHS Postgraduate Conferences

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

Forthcoming: BSHS Postgraduate Conference 2020

The 2020 BSHS postgraduate conference will take place at the University of Leeds, 1-3 April 2020. See the conference website for more information: https://bshspostgraduateconference2020.wordpress.com
