Following on from a fantastic session in Liverpool last month, we are pleased to announce that the preliminary schedule for the next in the series of Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research workshops has just been released. This workshop will take place on Friday 16th January 2015 at the University of Newcastle, and will be a joint session between the universities of Newcastle and Northumbria. The day will run from 10.30 till 5 and will include lunch and coffee breaks.

There will also be an open forum for postgraduate/early career research that is currently in process, and PG/ECR members of the network are warmly invited to submit proposals for 10 minute provocation papers for this part of the day. If you would like to share some of your research at this forum, please email Harriet Ryder with a brief proposal.
