Picking up the baton

Sebastian Fonseca has been running the undergraduate module Science, Technology and Medicine in the Cold War for year 2 students at the University of Exeter. This is a module first run by Dora a few years ago, Sebastian has taken on the challenge with some modified sessions.
He is lecturing on Tuesday afternoons, and seminars on Friday, to contribute in teaching from C3W. Lots of the literature and suggested readings have been the basis for our discussions in the project, so it connects very closely with our work.


Simon Huxtable was awarded a British Academy small grant, the grant will fund research trips to the UNESCO archives in Paris, the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, the Narodnyi Archiv in Prague, and the National Archives of Nigeria in Ibadan.

We wish you luck with your research.


We are delighted to announce that our colleague Maziyar Ghiabi has just been awarded the Philip Leverhulme Prize for his “exceptional scholarly achievement.” This is a very prestigious prize in acknowledgement of extraordinary researchers within 10 years of their doctorate.

Very well done Maziyar!


The first University of Exeter’s Wellcome Centre seminar in the 2023/24 series took place and proved incredibly popular! It was standing room only in the boardroom with a considerable number of online attendees too. You can watch the full seminar, “Upheaval & Medical Humanities” presented by Lucía Guerrero Rivière, Sebastian Fonseca, and Cristian Montenegro, on their YouTube channel.
