Postgraduate Forum for the History of Medicine: 3rd Annual Summit
Swansea University, 18/19 April 2012

Swansea University is hosting the third annual summit for postgraduate students and early-career researchers working in the History of Medicine. Following on from the success of two previous events in Warwick and London, the summit is an opportunity for people with similar research interests to meet, present their work and discuss their ideas.

Attendees will have the opportunity to give short presentations of 10-15 minutes each about their research, followed by a group discussion about future events and how we can continue to build a network for postgraduate historians working in the History of Medicine. The event will also include dinner at a local restaurant and a trip to the Victorian seaside town of Mumbles.

The summit will be split over two half-days (Wednesday 1pm to Thursday 2:30pm, with the trip following afterwards) and registration is free. However, places are limited. Tea and coffee will be provided, and there will be a buffet lunch on the second day. Attendees are responsible for booking their own accommodation, though help and information will be sent out upon registration. Please send your name and institution, along with a 100-word abstract about your presentation, to Mike Mantin by 24 February 2012.

This event is supported by the Research Institute for Arts & Humanities at Swansea University
