Oxford Doctoral and Masters Students in HSMT will present, with panels on:

• Early modern natural philosophy
• Modern science
• Psychology
• Public health and colonialism
• Reproduction and eugenics

The History of Science, Medicine, and Technology is an ever-expanding discipline. This two-day conference allows postgraduate students in the field to present their research, covering a broad chronological, geographic, and thematic scope. Panel topics range from early modern ideas to public health, with individual papers covering subjects as diverse as reproductive technology, honeybee diseases and twentieth-century scepticism about science – truly offering new perspectives, as questions fundamental to the history of science and medicine are explored and examined.
