The Medical Humanities Reading Group

The Medical Humanities Reading Group is a fortnightly reading group that will meet to discuss questions and other ideas related to the growing interdisciplinary field of the medical humanities. Topics will include, but are not limited to, historical and current approaches to the medical humanities as an area of study, the contributions of different disciplines to understandings of health, illness and the role of medicine, the body, narrative, material culture and the arts, disability, affect, healthcare and health activism, ethics, pedagogy and global challenges.

For our final medical humanities reading group, on Thursday 12th December, we will be discussing an article by Michelle Murphy, entitled “Unsettling Care: Troubling Transnational Itineraries of Care in Feminist Health Practices”.

 You can access the reading through the Dropbox here.

As always, we meet in Cornwallis Octagon Lecture Theatre 2, at 2 pm. See here for directions.

The reading group is open to students and staff with an interest in medical humanities. Please forward this email to anyone who may be interested and ask them to​ email so that they can be added to the medical humanities mailing list.
