A panel of five leading historians of women, gender and sexuality set out their vision of what women’s history should be doing in the next thirty years.

Directly following the discussion was an Address by Hillary Rodham Clinton, 67th U.S. Secretary of State.
Although Oxford’s History of Medicine began on a small scale in 1972, it now stands as one of the world’s leading programmes in history of medicine for both teaching and research. On 24 & 25 June 2022, we will celebrate 50 years of history of medicine at Oxford, and we would like to invite you to come join us.
Even if you cannot make it in person to Oxford, we would love to hear from you: please share your experience of history of medicine at Oxford and what you are doing now by clicking here!
Work is in full sway to develop and launch the Faculty’s new Community History initiative: an innovative programme of research, public engagement and curriculum activities rooted in equitable, creative partnerships with our local community in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
By mid-Hilary, we’ll be launching a digital hub for community history on the Faculty website, so stay tuned for the next exciting steps!
