Durham University’s Centre for Medical Humanities is delighted to be hosting the first in a series of Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research workshops. Supported the Wellcome Trust, the workshops are a showcase of work in progress designed to help build connections and foster collaborations among medical humanities researchers, health professionals, artists and advocates. The series runs until June 2016 with workshops at the Universities of Liverpool, Newcastle and Northumbria, Sheffield, Leeds, York, and Glasgow.
Three themed panels – on “Mind, Body, Affect,” the “Critical Medical Humanities” and “Communities of Interest” – will feature short presentations and provocations from a range of speakers including Jane Macnaughton, David Herman, Felicity Callard, Mary Robson, Corinne Saunders, Will Viney and Angela Woods. The workshop will conclude with a roundtable discussion drawing together themes raised throughout the day.
Participants are also invited to a wine reception “Celebrating the past, transitioning into the future” to be held next door at St Chad’s College. This event marks the end of the Centre for Medical Humanities’ Strategic Award and will celebrate ongoing and newly funded projects and announce the Centre’s programme of events for 2014-5.
There is no charge to attend the workshop but places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The workshop is currently fully booked, but please contact Jane Abel if you would like to be added to a waiting list. A full programme will be circulated to confirmed participants at the start of September.
