The British Society for the History of Science (BSHS) holds their next annual conference at the University of Manchester, UK, 28 June–1 July 2007. The BSHS meetings are usually very nicely organised and you will meet a lot of British (+ US, German, some French, and even some Scandinavian) historians of STM who have decided to join the ranks of the BSHS for the sheer pleasure of attending their meetings and meet their peers.
As usual papers are invited in all areas of the history of science, technology and medicine. Proposals for themed panels are particularly encouraged. Themed panel organisers will receive further guidelines, and are welcome to discuss provisional proposals with the programme organisers via the address below. Paper abstracts should contain a maximum of 250 words, use no footnotes, and be comprehensible to a non-specialist audience. Panel submissions, where possible, should include individual abstracts (as above) for the papers, and should include contact details for all presenters.
The deadline for receipt of submissions is 4 February 2007 at . More info about registration will be published in February 2007 in the Society’s newsletter, Viewpoint, and on the Society’s website.
