Society for the Social History of Medicine

Since its inaugural meeting in 1970, the Society for the Social History of Medicine (SSHM) has pioneered inter-disciplinary approaches to the histories of health, welfare, medical science and practice. The disciplinary backgrounds of its membership vary widely, including history, public health, demography, anthropology, sociology, social administration and health economics.

SSHM's journal, Social History of Medicine (1988-), published by Oxford University Press, is one of the internationally leading journals in the field.

In 1987 SSHM also launched a book series, currently published by Pickering & Chatto. Since 2001 the Society has accepted single-authored monographs as well as edited collections.

The Society runs and sponsors an extensive conference and workshop programme. The next SSHM Biennial conference will take place in Oxford from 12 to 14 July 2014 (Call for Papers).

Though primarily based in the United Kingdom, the Society has always had a thriving international membership, and both Social History of Medicine and the book series have continued to expand their international coverage, reflecting the growing number of subscribers and readers outside the UK.

The SSHM is a charitable organisation registered in the UK. Charity Registration Number: 278414
