Medical Humanities: Postgraduate / ECR Networking Event
Durham University’s Centre for Medical Humanities (CMH) invites all postgraduates and early-career researchers interested in the medical humanities to a networking event.
While the event will primarily be an informal chance to meet other students and researchers, the session will aim to open up discussion by addressing the question: “What is the ‘medical humanities’ today?”
Professor Jane Macnaughton (Co-Director of the CMH) will provide an introduction to the wide range of interdisciplinary research currently being carried out by the CMH.
We are particularly keen to welcome new students and researchers who have just commenced their work in Durham or other institutions in the North East. Anyone who wants to know more about this exciting field is welcome, even if it is not the principal focus of your research.
The CMH provides a vibrant interdisciplinary research environment for thinking critically about the human experience of health and illness. Current postgraduates/ ECRs have backgrounds in a diverse range of disciplines, from Anthropology to English, Geography to Philosophy. The CMH’s Wolfson Postgraduate/ ECR Research Network provides an ideal forum to build relationships and share ideas with researchers from across the University.
Attendance is free – but please email Jane Abel to register your attendance (email@example.com).
The CMH Wolfson Postgraduate/ ECR Research Network will be holding a series of research seminars and other events throughout the year. If you would like to be kept informed of upcoming events please email Fraser Riddell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
