Celebrating Our Future: New directions in Medical Humanities Research and Annual Summer Party (Thursday June 20, St Chad’s College)

Staff at the Centre for Medical Humanities are delighted to invite you to our Annual
Affiliates Summer Party

Thursday 20 June
3.30 – 5pm
St Chad’s SCR
St Chad’s College
Durham

This year we celebrate the new directions in Medical Humanities research through the work of three of our post-doctoral fellows. Each of the fellows will make a short presentation and we will then open the floor to questions and discussion, followed by drinks and canapés in a convivial setting to round off the academic year’s achievements.

Our post-doctoral fellows are:  Dr Jenny Laws , who challenges one of the leading orthodoxies in contemporary health practice, that of active recoveries, and explores the nature of human energies (see The Active Patient ); Dr Will Viney, who is undertaking a cultural study of twins across history and literature; and Dr Hilary Powell, who works on twelfth-century saints’ lives in the Hearing the Voice project.

All are welcome, RSVPs via email essential for catering purposes.
