Annual Conference

BSHP Annual Conference

The BSHP Annual Conference, at which the Annual General Meeting is held, usually takes place in the spring at a UK university. Normally, in even-numbered years, we hold themed conferences, and in odd-numbered years we hold larger, general conferences. Members are encouraged to submit an abstract when the Call for Papers is issued.

To attend and/or deliver a paper at the Annual Conference, you must be a member of the BSHP and pay the conference registration fee. There is no conference registration fee for student participants.

We offer a limited number of bursaries for speakers who are students and/or unwaged, and support for childcare. Facilities vary by university, so please see specific conference information for details.
