Event description
Join us for the 6th annual Postgraduate Medical Humanities Conference in June 2019, to hear from a wide range of promising researchers

About this Event

*REGISTRATION IS FREE*

The Postgraduate Medical Humanities Conference will return in June 2019 for its sixth consecutive year. Over the last five years, we have brought together an international community for medical humanities researchers to share their diverse research and to network with academics within and across disciplinary boundaries.

Participants will present on a range of topics around the theme of ‘Embodiment, Health, and Medicine,’ encompassing medical models in ancient history, gendered medical professionalism, and phenomenological narratives of illness.

We are particularly thrilled to welcome our keynote speakers: Professor Havi (University of Bristol), who will be speaking on 'Organ Transplantation as Tranformational Experience', and Professor Laura Salisbury (University of Exeter), who will be speaking on 'Depressing Time.

Coffee, lunch, and refreshments will be provided on both days.

If you have any questions please contact exemedhumsconf@gmail.com.
