Registration is open for the final workshop in the current series organised by the Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research, at York Medical Society on 22 September 2016. Supported by the Wellcome Trust, the workshops are a showcase of work in progress designed to help build connections and foster collaborations among medical humanities researchers, health professionals, artists and advocates.
The theme of the first session of the day will be ‘Communities of Interest: Global Health Histories, Policy and the World Health Organisation’. This session will explore current research and public outreach work being done by members of the Centre for Global Health Histories at York, a WHO Collaborating Centre, and the links between academia and international health policy.
The second session will focus on ‘Critical Medical Humanities: Impact and Engagement’, and will include a talk by a representative from the Wellcome Trust. This will be followed by a number of short ‘provocation’ papers on the topic of impact and engagement in relation to medical humanities projects.
The workshop is free to attend but please email Marie Allitt to reserve a place. Some bursaries are available to cover travel costs for graduate students so let Marie know if you would be interested in applying for one when you register. The day includes lunch and coffee breaks for all participants. Further information, including a list of confirmed speakers, can be found on the NNMHR website. Alternatively, please contact Alice Hall with any queries.
