SSHM2022 50th Anniversary Conference: Resilience

We are thrilled to announce the postponed Society for the Social History of Medicine conference will be held at Swansea University, 29 June – 2 July 2022. The conference theme is ‘Resilience’.

This will be a hybrid event with in-person and online sessions and panels – Wednesday June 29 is for arrivals and registration (no sessions or panels).Sessions and panels will start Thursday 30 June and run until midday on Saturday 2 July.  

In the coming weeks we will open early registration. The conference webpage and provisional programme will follow soon thereafter. We hope to keep in-person registration fees at or close to those for the postponed 2020 conference. There will be options for those planning to attend in-person and online. Those planning to attend in-person for the full conference will have the option of full room and board at the Singleton Campus of the university (this is the conference site). Rooms will be in vacated student buildings. Please note that on-campus accommodation is limited and priority will be given to panelists. 

Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer single-day room and board. Should you choose not to stay on campus, information on hotels and B&Bs nearby will be provided on the conference webpage. 

Links to the registration and conference webpages will be posted here, and on pages for the Swansea University History Department and Medical Humanities Research Centre 

Panelists who had papers accepted in 2020 and who have not confirmed participation in this year’s conference are urged to email or
