Hubbub is an international team of scientists, humanists, artists, clinicians, public health experts, broadcasters and public engagement professionals, led by the Centre for Medical Humanities’ Felicity Callard. Hubbub aims to explore the dynamics of rest, noise, tumult, activity and work, as they operate in mental health, neuroscience, the arts and the everyday. The Hubbub team are based in London as the first residents of The Hub at Wellcome Collection from October 2014 to July 2016.
Supported by a Collaborative Skills Development grant from the AHRC and the Wellcome Trust, this unique programme delivers an exciting and innovative skills development package to a group of doctoral students and early career researchers in the medical humanities while facilitating the development of a supportive, interdisciplinary peer group. Additionally, the programme will create career development opportunities by enabling interaction between participants and staff in key centres of the medical humanities while engaging in discussions on the full range of medical humanities career options. The programme enhances research skills and give participants the opportunity to experience high quality public engagement.
