Conferences

Since 1970, the Society for the Social History of Medicine has been actively involved in the organization of specialised conferences and has facilitated research and debate within the discipline of the social history of medicine, with a particular emphasis on inter-disciplinary approaches.

The Society's conferences are open to non-members. However, membership of the Society entitles conference delegates not only to reduced registration fees (there are some bursaries available for student members on request) but also includes many other benefits, such as subscription to the journal Social History of Medicine and a 30% reduction on books published in the Society's text series, Studies in the Social History of Medicine.
