Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research Congress, Van Mildert College Durham, 14th-15th September 2017.
Durham University’s Centre for Medical Humanities will be hosting the first research congress of the Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research from 14th-15th September 2017. The Northern Network was established in 2013 to provide support and demonstrate critical mass amongst universities interested in research in medical humanities outside London and the South East. So far we have organised a number of research workshops with support from the Wellcome Trust led by Durham, Leeds, York, Glasgow, Sheffield, Liverpool and Newcastle/Northumbria Universities.
The September Congress is not confined to members of the Network but will welcome everyone who is interested in research in medical humanities. There will be no charge for the meeting itself and we will advertise some travel and accommodation bursaries for postgraduate students in due course. The meeting will include conventional parallel sessions (an open call for papers will go out later in April – watch the CMH blog!), posters to showcase existing medical humanities projects, as well as round table discussions on key themes and an open space session to encourage new collaborations.
Look out for a call for papers in late April and in the meantime, please do save the dates : Thursday 14th-Friday 15th September. Durham is beautiful in the early autumn and you will be warmly welcomed to the city and the University!
