SSHM Conference 2012: Emotions, Health, and Wellbeing
10-12 September 2012, London
The Society for the Social History of Medicine (SSHM) hosts a major, biennial, international, interdisciplinary conference. In 2012, it is being held in conjunction with the Queen Mary Centre for the History of the Emotions, on the theme ‘Emotions, Health and Wellbeing’. The conference investigates the intimate relationship between the emotions and medicine, addressing a wide variety of periods and places.
Our plenary speakers are Joanna Bourke (Birkbeck), Mark Jackson (Exeter), and William Reddy (Duke); a full conference programme is available on the conference website and we will also be running a number of excursions to local museums of interest for delegates. We hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a rich and fascinating conference.
