An interdisciplinary collaboration between the Faculties of Arts and Medicine & Health at the University of Leeds
Medical Humanities: Futures
Call for Papers: 2nd Congress of the Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research: Weetwood Hall, University of Leeds, 20-21 September 2018.
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.
The second NNMHR Congress will be held at Weetwood Hall, the University of Leeds on 20-21 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 Congress is not limited to members of the network.
The call for contributions is now open.
Please submit your proposal for the Congress using this form by 25 May 2018. All proposals will be reviewed by staff at the University of Leeds, in consultation with the NNMHR Congress Steering Group, and presenters will be notified by 8 June 2018 when registrations will open.
The NNMHR Congress is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is free to attend. All refreshments will be provided, including a Congress dinner on the evening of the 20th. Five bursaries covering accommodation and travel of up to £175 will be available to support postgraduate participation at the Congress. Applications for bursaries will be considered following the final selection of panels and papers.
The congress hashtag is #NNMHR2018
