Actions and Detail Panel
Launch of Glasgow University Medical Humanities Network Website
Fri 22 January 2016, 17:00 – 18:30 GMT
The medical humanities complement, contextualize and critique purely biomedical, technological or other reductive accounts of what it means to experience illness, encounter disease or transact a therapeutic relationship. In addressing how we comprehend health, sickness, disease and “the embodied life”, such concerns are examined from a range of professional and patient perspectives.
We are delighted to launch the new Wellcome Trust-funded Glasgow University Medical Humanities Network website on 22nd January 2016. The event will begin with a short introduction to the site and its purpose and structure. Following the site demo there will be a wine reception in the atrium of the Wolfson Medical Building.
This website is intended to act as a forum to connect individuals working across a range of disciplines and practices at the University of Glasgow, who are interested in the intersections of medicine, culture, and the arts and humanities. It features people, projects, collections, and teaching resouces at Glasgow, all engaging with the medical humanities.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
