We are a group of scholars and practitioners interested in exploring the intersections of — and interstices between — medicine and the humanities, art and science, health and illness, the human and the non-human. We are planning to do so both critically and creatively. Some of us have been involved with designing and teaching an innovative MSc programme in Medical Humanities. Others have worked together on a range of research or public engagement projects.
We are interdisciplinary and cross-faculty, based in a variety of locations associated with the University of Manchester. We want to provide a virtual home for the wide range of activities taking place in the medical humanities, research, practice and teaching, in and around this city.
