The Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research (NNMHR) is delighted to welcome scholars, practitioners, health professionals, artists and health advocates to join us at Durham University for its inaugural Congress.

This is an opportunity for people who are passionate or even simply curious about medical humanities research to share ideas and meet potential future colleagues and collaborators.

The programme includes a keynote address by Ericka Johnson and Kristin Zeiler (Linköping University, Sweden), parallel sessions, Open Space (where participants self-organise to focus on themes and aims identified by them) and two closing panel sessions on Critical Disability Studies and Global Medical Humanities. Further detail of the programme can be viewed here – NNMHR Provisional Programme.

This event is now fully booked, so registration has closed. If you have registered and still need to book accommodation at Van Mildert College, please follow this link.

The Congress will be held at Van Mildert College Durham, Thursday 14th – Friday 15th September 2017. Refreshments and dinner on Thursday 14th are included. The Congress closes at 4.30pm on Friday 15th. Please contact Jane Abel with any questions.

Dear Colleague
I am Consultant Paediatrician in Surrey and PhD candidate in Medical Humanities at Birkbeck, UoL. I have completed MA in Medical Humanities, also at Birkbeck. I am researching on “Entangled story of ADHD”. I could present a paper on this topic at your conference in September. I could send you short abstract, slides and my biopic if you are interested. I also intend to attend the conference. I am a member of Association of Medical Humanities.
