Dear listmembers

The annual conference of the British Society for the History of Science 
is in Leicester at the beginning of July. Not so much computing or IT as 
in 2008 (and I have my eighteenth-century hat on this time), but you may 
wish to note Session 11 on technologies and users, featuring Tom Lean 
and Ian Martin, and Sandra Mols in Session 8. More generally, the 
twentieth century is particularly well represented this year.

Anyone interested should note that the deadline for reduced-rate 
registration is very close (Saturday 30 June).

The 2009 BSHS Annual Conference will take place at Stamford Hall, 
University of Leicester, from Thursday 2 - Saturday 5 July 2009. The 
conference programme includes parallel themed sessions, plenary 
lectures, education and outreach activities, and a conference dinner at 
the National Space Centre.

Full details, including provisional programme and online registration 
form, are available at
