This international workshop aimed to strengthen links between British scholars and institutions and those in Greece and the Balkans working on the social history of medicine. This on-going collaboration has already been explored over the course of two previous conferences, one in London in January 2008 (organised in collaboration with the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL), the other in Vienna in November 2008 (organised in collaboration with the Medical University of Vienna). For the full details on both events see the HRE website.
To further and deepen this international debate, this workshop used the expertise provided by scholars at the Centre for Health, Medicine and Society at Oxford Brookes University and the financial opportunities created by its Wellcome Trust's funded Strategic Award to build upon and extend the research foundations laid by previous activities, not only in terms of a transfer of knowledge, but also in terms of direct involvement in new collaborative endeavours with as diverse institutions as the Graduate Programme of the Faculty of History and Archaeology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, and the British School at Athens.
The Workshop was organised and sponsored by the Working Group on the History of Race and Eugenics at Oxford Brookes University; together with the Graduate Programme of the Faculty of History and Archaeology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the British School at Athens, and The Berendel Foundation, London.
The conveners, Dr Marius Turda, Dr Katerina Gardikas and Professor Catherine Morgan, express their gratitude to all involved in making this workshop such a remarkable success.
