The next meeting of the CMH PG and ECR Medical Humanities Network will take as its theme Everyday Possibilities within the medical humanities and related disciplines. The meeting will take place in The Williams Library at St Chad’s College, Durham on Weds 14th March, 5.30-6.30pm. Refreshments will be provided.
Intersecting with a broad range of critical inquiries, the theme speaks to topics including (but not limited to):
- Scales, times, and landscapes in the clinical encounter
- Tools, technologies, prostheses
- Cultures of care
- Material objects in healthcare
- Everyday possibilities in literature, visual arts, and film
- Interdisciplinary research methodologies
We will be meeting to discuss research related to these strands of inquiry, but we are also looking for one or two volunteers to provide an informal provocation or presentation on an aspect of their own research which speaks to the theme of this session (c. 5 minutes). Please reply to Natalie Riley, if you are interested in presenting or attending.
This seminar is the first of a series. In our second session, to be held on 22 May 2018 (Collier Room, Hild Bede College, Durham 5-7pm), Dr James Stark (University of Leeds) will be joining us to give a talk on Endless Possibilities of Rejuvenation. Please contact Natalie Riley if you would like to attend.
