Doctoral student Mike Mantin has been successful in securing a Wellcome Trust award for the forthcoming third annual 'History of Medicine Postgraduate Summit' to be held at Swansea University between 18 and 19 April 2012.

This event will build on the success of the previous two summits and will strengthen the Postgraduate Forum for the History of Medicine as a network and discussion space for PhD students and early career researchers interested in this particular field of research.

Papers will cover a wide variety of topics associated with the history of medicine and will include particular focus on areas such as technology and disability.

Mike is currently in his third year of doctoral study and is conducting research on education and the experience of disability for children in Wales, 1845-1914.
