BSHS Postgraduate Conference 2022- Call for Papers

The call for papers for the 2022 British Society for the History of Science Postgraduate Conference is now open. 

Given the ongoing Covid-19 situation in the UK and abroad, we have chosen to hold a virtual conference via Zoom which will take place from Thursday 28th April to Saturday 30th April.

We welcome papers from graduate students working in any area of the history of science, technology, and medicine, in any period of history, and in any geographical area. We are committed to providing a truly international forum for scholarly discussion and exchange and encourage graduate students from any nationality to apply.

Papers should be 15-20 minutes long. Papers will be delivered virtually via Zoom and will be followed by a discussion with panel speakers and audience members. Joint submissions for three-person panels are also welcome.

We invite you to submit a title and abstract of up to 250 words with your name, affiliation, and contact details. For joint submissions, we require that an additional 100-word panel abstract be submitted. The deadline for applications is Monday 28th March 2022.
