apologies for cross-posting
The Centre for Medical Humanities and Bioethics (Linkping University) and the
Institute for Medical Humanities (Durham University) jointly call for
applications for a Medical Humanities International Summer School 2024:
Interdisciplinarity: Medical Humanities and Research at the intersections of
the Humanities, the Social Sciences, Clinical Practice and Biomedicine
What does interdisciplinarity in medical humanities mean? What are the
epistemological underpinnings of different interdisciplinary ways of engaging
in medical humanities research? What are the challenges and possibilities in
interdisciplinary research at the intersection between the humanities, the
social sciences, clinical research, and biomedicine?
These are some of the questions that will be explored in this Medical
Humanities Summer School aimed at PhD students in medical humanities, social
sciences, and medicine, and with an interest in interdisciplinary research.
The Summer School will be held between 9-11 September 2024, in beautiful
Vadstena, close to Linkping, Sweden. It is coordinated by the Centre for
Medical Humanities and Bioethics at Linkping University, in collaboration
with the Institute for Medical Humanities at Durham University.
