'PhD Workshop on History of Medieval and Early Modern Science and Medicine' to be held at the University of Cambridge on 23rd March 2007. 19 Feb 2007

PhD Workshop on History of Medieval and Early Modern Science and Medicine Although several excellent training programmes are available for PhD candidates, no specific support is available for students researching medieval and early modern science and medicine. These areas present particular challenges for students, often requiring the acquisition of language and palaeography skills, and the use of material which may be dispersed or incomplete. To address these problems, the workshop will open with a presentation on the issues which distinguish early history of science and medicine from other periods. This will be followed by a panel session on framing research questions from texts, objects, images, and quantitative data. After lunch, a second panel session will concentrate on acquiring or improving practical skills: languages (for instance, setting up support groups, such as Cambridge's Latin Therapy); palaeography; electronic resources; and approaching archives and collections. Each panel will be illustrated by texts and objects from the Whipple Museum's valuable collection of scientific and medical artefacts. The workshop will close with a Q&A session, in which participants will be encouraged to put questions to other students as well as to the panellists. Throughout, particular emphasis will be placed on student interaction and feedback. Feedback forms will be issued early on, with students encouraged to add to these throughout the day. They will also be asked to submit in advance an abstract of their research interests, which will be compiled in a booklet together with their contact details and a list of relevant PhD resources.

40 years of Family Research. 28 Mar 2006

Title of meeting: 40 years of Family Research Martin Richards has been an eminent researcher in many areas of family research and it is probably not an exaggeration to describe him as one of the pioneers in the field of psychological and social aspects of 'new' human genetics. He has raised important questions, developed research and contributed greatly in areas such as genetic screening, consent and bioethics. He has given generously of his time to serve on many committees in associated areas. The occasion of his retirement seems an appropriate time to reflect on his contributions and the way his work can be taken forward.
