Oxford 2021 HSMT Postgraduate Conference

Picture This: Charting Themes Across HSMT

Friday 11 June, 10:00-18:30 - Online

Welcome to the 2021 postgraduate conference featuring the work of students from across the history of science, medicine, and technology. Coming from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from evolutionary biology to English literature, each student brings a unique perspective to the themes and methodologies they explore. The title of this year’s conference, Picture This: Charting Themes Across HSMT, highlights how a vast array of topics, from botany to Brazilian explorers, are connected together in a common picture, capturing our particular network of history. Interdisciplinary, critical, and relevant; historians of science, medicine, and technology help us to navigate the world with context and nuance. Each presentation is only a snippet of the time and energy put into each individual’s research and we want to thank everyone for sharing regardless of where they are with their dissertation.
