The Future of Medical History

The Wellcome Trust and UCL have decided to close the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine and initiate a two year wind down, without a quinquennial peer review. This marks the end of the Centre, and its prior incarnation, the Academic Unit of the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine. The academic staff of the Centre would like to invite you to a three day international conference on the Future of Medical History, to take place on 15-17 July 2010 in London. In keeping with the research of the Centre and former Institute, contributions will be welcome on all aspects of medical history. Papers will be limited to 20 minutes each. Please send an abstract and contact details to Lauren Cracknell ([email protected]) by 1 June 2010. Due to current circumstances, the Centre will not be able to cover travel and accommodation.
