Lilian Lindsay Memorial Lecture

Is print history? The BDJ and dental literature from dots to electrons

Friday 11 May 2018   |   LONDON

Registration from 10:30
Lecture from 11:00-12:00 followed by a sandwich lunch

1 hour CPD
FREE to attend

The prestigious Lilian Lindsay Memorial Lecture is given each year by a distinguished member of the dental profession or an academic or historian working in the field of dental history.

The lecture is named in honour of Lilian Lindsay (1871 -1960), the first lady to qualify as a dentist in the United Kingdom in 1895. She went on to found the BDA museum and laid the foundations of the world class reference library we have today. She was a writer and a scholar, being the first to translate Pierre Fauchard's seminal work of 1728 into English. In 1946 she was elected President of the BDA and awarded the CBE the same year.  

This year's lecturer is Dr Stephen Hancocks; known to many as a dentist, writer, publisher and performer. As the current editor of the BDJ he is in a unique position to inform, fascinate and amuse us all with his lecture: Is print history? The BDJ and dental literature from dots to electrons.
