Opportunity to help improve research in the Institute for Medical Humanities
(19 February 2021)
We are looking for non-academics to help us think through our research questions, methods and communications to help make our work as relevant and accessible as possible. Do you know anyone, e.g. friends, family or neighbours, who might be interested? We are holding two no-obligation information sessions this March over Zoom.
The Institute for Medical Humanities at Durham University is dedicated to exploring the way that things like past experiences, emotions, arts and culture, and beliefs can have an impact on our health. We are particularly interested in studying health conditions which are ‘hidden’ in some way – for example, problems which might be considered shameful, don’t have visible symptoms or can’t be measured using standard medical techniques. These are often health problems that standard medical models cannot explain or treat.
To help us make sure we are asking the right kinds of questions and thinking through possible consequences of our research we hope to bring together a group of ‘critical friends’ to advise us. Could this be someone you know? We are holding two no-obligation information sessions on Tuesday 9 March at 1pm and on Wednesday 10 March at 6.30pm. The sessions will be held by video conference on Zoom. Sign up here
