Call for Papers and Symposia: BSHS Annual Conference 2020
The British Society for the History of Science invites proposals for individual papers and organised symposia for its 2020 Annual Conference, which this year will be held in Aberystwyth, home of the National Library of Wales and Aberystwyth University, from Wednesday 8 July to Saturday 11 July.
The BSHS is committed to providing an inclusive forum for research and research-led engagement with HSTM, and therefore welcomes proposals for papers and symposia on papers and symposia on topic related to the history of science, technology, or medicine, relating to period of history, and part of the world. Established and early career scholars affiliated to universities, museums, and other research organisations, postgraduate students and independent scholars of nationality are welcome at the BSHS Conference, and we encourage all equally to apply. We aim to provide a conference that is welcoming to all delegates regardless of age, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, race, ethnicity, and religion.
