Medical Humanities Strand research clusters
13 November 2018
We are delighted to announce four new research clusters have been established as part of the EBI Medical Humanities Strand. Opening the door to new arts-science collaborations by connecting researchers from all faculties together with clinicians and external partners for research focusing on philosophy and humanities.
- Chronic Conditions and their Narratives (Co-Leads: Dr Genevieve Liveley, Department of Classics and Ancient History, and Dr Maria Vaccarella, Department of English)
- Grief (Lead: Dr Jimmy Hay, Department of Film and Television)
- Illness and Health in Colonial Film Archives (Lead: Dr Jacqueline Maingard, Department of Film and Television)
- Senses (Lead: Dr Cleo Hanaway-Oakley, Department of English)
An interdisciplinary research event was held on 20 September to launch the new Medical Humanities Strand, where attendees were warmly invited to present their work, meet other scholars and learn more about the strand. The event provided an opportunity for those working in the medical humanities to come together to discuss their work, hear about cognate research, and develop cluster ideas.
Find out more about the Medical Humanities Strand at their networking event on 12 Dec 3-5pm. The event will provide an opportunity to meet with those working in, or interested in finding out more about, Medical Humanities, in order to nurture cross-faculty collaborations and to encourage interdisciplinary team creation.
