Medicine in its Place: Situating Medicine in Historical Contexts

Society for the Social History of Medicine Conference 2016: Medicine in its place

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.

When: 7 – 10 July 2016
