Description

A workshop/symposium to explore the potential of a diverse range of archives and museum collections as tools for enquiry and study in the history of medicine.

We aim to attract medical historians, archivists, museum curators and others interested in the history of medicine.

The workshop will include:

  • Mini-presentations on a range of museum and archival collections with speakers from the Royal College of Physicians, Kew Gardens, Lothian Health Archives, the Science Museum and the Royal College of GPs; covering topics ranging from oral history collections, genetic history archives, women in medicine, plant material collections, and a unique general practice archive.
  • A networking refreshment break with some online demonstrations of digitised collections.
  • A panel/audience discussion of topics related to the use of history of medicine collections for historical study.
