The call for papers for the 2023 British Society for the History of Science Postgraduate Conference is now open.

Given the ongoing Covid-19 situation in the UK and abroad, we have chosen to hold a hybrid conference. The in-person event will be held at the University of Oxford, with all sessions also being streamed virtually over Zoom. The conference will take place from Thursday 30 March to Saturday 1 April.

We welcome papers from postgraduate students or ECRs working in any area of the history of science, technology and medicine, in any period of history, and in any geographical area. We are committed to providing a truly international forum for scholarly discussion and exchange and encourage graduate students from any nationality to apply.

Papers will be 20 minutes long and followed by a discussion with panel speakers and audience members. Joint submissions for three-person panels are also welcome.

We invite you to submit a title and abstract of up to 250 words with your name, affiliation, and contact details. For joint submissions, we require that an additional 100-word panel abstract be submitted. Please also indicate in your application if you wish to attend in-person or virtually. The deadline for applications is Monday 30 January 2023. We will notify applicants by the week beginning 20 February 2023 regarding the status of their application.

Applications should be sent to the organising committee at:
