Centre for Medical Humanities

Affiliates

CMH Affiliates are our collaborating colleagues within the University. Drawn from Departments in all three Faculties, ranging from History to Physics and from Music to Psychology, our Affiliates are individuals whose research interests align with the Centre’s general project, potentially enabling the development of research collaborations of mutual benefit.

 The beneficial interactions between the Centre and Affiliates include:

·Taking part in scheduled Affiliates meetings

·Using the Centre’s meeting facilities for additional research meetings

·Making reference to the Centre’s aegis where this is of assistance in research applications

·Access to the Centre’s other academic activities including seminars

·On-going networking with other Affiliates and with the Centre’s external collaborators where appropriate.


CMH Affiliates’ Lunches

CMH Affiliates' lunches are held twice each term. Each lunch focuses on a theme of interest to our Affiliates, and provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas which we hope will lead to exciting new projects and collaborations. Our first lunch of this academic year launched a competition for seedcorn funding of up to £500 for new Medical Humanities projects. We were delighted to make four awards; information about the successful applicants and their projects can be found here.

The usual format for lunch meetings involves two short talks by colleagues from different disciplines on a theme of interest across a range of departments, followed by discussion over a buffet lunch. We warmly welcome all those interested in our themes and collaborative aims to join us for our Affiliates' lunches, and are always pleased to hear suggestions for themes. Affiliates are invited to contact Corinne Saunders or Jane Macnaughton if they would like to use one of these events to discuss a proposal or present a theme. All lunches are on a Thursday and start at noon with a prompt finish at 2pm.

Please look out for announcements about future lunches and Affiliates' events.

Previous Affiliates' Lunches have featured the following talks and themes:

'War, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and the Arts’, presented by Professor Barbara Graziosi (Classics and Ancient History) and Dr Patrick Gray (English Studies).

Human - Non-Human Interactions’, presented by Professor David Herman (English Studies) and Dr Andrew Russell (Anthropology)

'Ritual Innovation: Thank you for Donated Organs', presented by Professor Douglas Davies (Theology and Religion) and Professor Bob Simpson (Anthropology)
