Postgraduate Medical Humanities Conference 2015

Medical Humanities Postgraduate Conference 2015
University of Exeter, 20 - 21 July 2015

Keynote Speakers:
Professor Stuart Murray, University of Leeds
Dr Roberta Bivins, University of Warwick

Building on the success of the 2014 Postgraduate Medical Humanities Conference, the 2015 medical humanities postgraduate conference brought together researchers from a variety of disciplines in a manner that reflected the broad scope of exciting research currently being carried out in the field of the medical humanities.

The conference provided a forum for postgraduate scholars to exchange ideas and share their research in a friendly and engaging environment. The eventalso allowed delegates to discuss their work with senior academics in the field, including keynote speakers and other members of the Exeter Centre for Medical History.

The event closed with a lively roundtable discussion, featuring the keynote speakers and other esteemed members of the Centre for Medical History. This session drew together the themes arising from the conference and reflect on future directions of research in the medical humanities.

There was also a workshop led by Ryan Sweet and Betsy Lewis-Holmes (co-organisers of the Exewhirr event) on public engagement.

We hope to be able to offer a small number of travel bursaries, which will be announced closer to the event.
