Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare
The Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow was established in 2005 as a collaboration between the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University.
We're now Scotland’s leading centre for the history of health and medicine.
Our key objectives are to produce the highest-quality research, knowledge exchange and teaching on all aspects of the social history of health and healthcare in the modern world.
Our centre has attracted resources from the Wellcome Trust, the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the Economic & Social Research Council, the British Academy and the European Social Fund and investment by both universities. It now numbers over twenty members of staff and a thriving postgraduate community.
Our seminar series
Seminars are on Tuesdays from 4pm to 5.30pm via Zoom. All welcome! Organised by Hannah Proctor.
Our teaching & training
Our M.Sc. in Health History is the perfect pathway between the history of health and medicine teaching at undergraduate level and a doctoral programme that has been funded by the Wellcome Trust and the research councils.
A series of online events relating to the history of medicine took place over July and August 2020 and 2021. Links to the webinars are now available.
Organised by Dr Laura Kelly and the MHCUK 2020 Fellows.
The Visiting Fellow scheme, the Annual Lecture series, the programme of seminars and the regular conferences have brought everyone from senior academics to early career researchers to our centre for over a decade.
