The Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research (NNMHR) was founded in 2013 with the purpose of connecting individuals and institutions working in this dynamic area of interdisciplinary research. The network numbers scholars, practitioners, health professionals, artists and health advocates amongst its members and held its first Congress at Durham University in September 2017.
Registration is now open for the second NNMHR Congress, which takes as its theme “Medical Humanities: Futures”. The event will be held at Weetwood Hall at the University of Leeds on Thursday 20 – Friday 21 September 2018. The logic of the Congress is simple: it is an opportunity for people who are passionate or even simply curious about medical humanities research to present their work, share ideas, and meet potential future colleagues and collaborators.
The NNMHR Congress is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is free to attend. Please note that the Congress is not limited to members of the network. All refreshments will be provided, including a Congress dinner on the evening of September 20th. Any questions should be directed to Amelia Defalco at the University of Leeds.
