Medicine in its Place: Situating Medicine in Historical Contexts

Society for the Social History of Medicine Conference 2016

7 - 10 July 2016
Canterbury, England, United Kingdom
Hosted by the Centre for the History of Medicine, Ethics and Medical Humanities, University of Kent

The Society for the Social History of Medicine hosts a major, biennial, international, and interdisciplinary conference. In 2016 it will explore the theme of place. The committee conceives 'place' in its broadest sense – from political, spatial, and cultural spaces, to the narrow confines of a patient's hospital bed. The biennial conference is not exclusive in terms of its theme, and reflects the diversity of the discipline of the social history of medicine.

A provisional programme is now available for download (pdf).
