Register for the 2021 HOTCUS PGR/ECR Conference: “Medicine, Disease, and Disability in the Twentieth-Century United States”
Friday 3rd September, 10am-6pm, online
This annual conference includes three exciting panels showcasing postgraduate research on activism, policymaking, and policing medicine, disease, and disability. Additionally, we will circulate a pre-recorded skills session on applying for Disabled Students Allowance and reasonable adjustments as a postgraduate student, in conversation with Natalie Humphrey, Head of Student Support and Wellbeing at UCL. On the day, there will also be a live session on completing remote research, featuring presentations on creating digital archives, conducting virtual oral histories, and hiring a research assistant.
We are thrilled that Dr Jaipreet Virdi of the University of Delaware will deliver the keynote address, entitled “Centralizing Access: Rethinking Disease and Disability”, which will be sent to attendees prior to the event, with the Q&A taking place at 5pm.
