SSHM in conversation with Thomas Bray, Humanities & Social Science, Wellcome
Thursday 24 June, 11am-12pm
This is also an opportunity for us to ask Tom your questions about Wellcome and about the role of the history of medicine community. Feel free to suggest questions about the purpose of the new strategy, the remit of health-related discovery research, or the eligibility criteria of the new schemes. He will not, however, be able to discuss specific project ideas at this stage.
Please send your questions for Tom in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1pm on Monday 21st June. We’ll do our best to address as many as we can in our conversation.
Registration essential: Book here.

SSHM 50th Anniversary Conference: Resilience
UPDATE ON SSHM2020 and CORONAVIRUS (31 March 2021)
We have with regret decided to postpone SSHM2020. The new dates are Wednesday 29 June to Saturday 2 July 2022. We hope that you will be able to join us then, but please let us know now if you cannot make these dates to assist in planning.
The 2022 conference programme will be updated to reflect changes that have occurred as result of postponing the 2020 conference. We appreciate that some people may wish to revise their proposals or change the composition of their panels (NB panel proposers – please ensure we have everyone’s email addresses and forward this email to your panellists, as we have some gaps). So please send in any amendments to this address by the end of 2021. We will honour those speakers we had accepted ahead of any new proposals we receive.
For information about the 2022 conference, please contact email@example.com
Our next Annual General Meeting will take place on 24 June 2021 at 16:00, virtually via Zoom. The Zoom link is available here. During the AGM, we will be talking about our activities in 2020. The AGM is also the opportunity for SSHM members to provide us with feedback and suggestions. We will also re-elect and nominate members at this meeting. Please note that nomination forms must now all be received by email. You can find the nomination form here:
