HEALTH HUMANITIES ECR/PG CONFERENCE, NOTTINGHAM UK, MARCH 2020
More than a decade ago, Paul Crawford at the University of Nottingham coined the term ‘Health Humanities’ to refer to the exploration of patient and carer experiences and health practices and perspectives outside medical education and physician self development, at that time the core of the ‘Medical Humanities’. Nottingham remains a centre for Health Humanities research and activity – you can read about this here.
The ‘Early bird researcher’ team at Nottingham are organising this one-day conference. It aims to bring together postgraduates and early career researchers from a wide range of disciplines across the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Health Sciences to discuss and explore the multifaceted relationship between our health and environment. We are therefore particularly keen to receive papers which investigate or reveal how physical, mental, emotional, and social health is intrinsically entwined with our wider material, physical, social, cultural, natural and political environments.
