The BSHS Postgraduate Conference is an annual event for postgraduate students from the UK and abroad. The entire conference is organised for and by postgraduates working within the History of Science, Technology and Medicine and related fields. Its purpose is to encourage links between postgraduates in these areas, who may often be isolated from others in their field of study. This conference will be an excellent opportunity to give a short paper, discuss ongoing research interests, and make contacts and friends with other students in similar fields. Our aim is for postgraduates to convene from a wide range of universities and disciplines to discuss our common interests and present our research in a friendly and receptive environment.
