CMH Arts in Health PhD Success

It is a huge pleasure to report to blog readers the success of one of our CMH PhD students, Anni Raw.  Anni has been with us since January 2010 funded on a prestigious Durham Interdisciplinary PhD Studentship.  At her viva on Friday 6th September, her examiners, Professor Nigel Rapport (Anthropology, St Andrews) and Professor Sarah Atkinson (Geography, Durham), recommended that she be awarded her degree unconditionally.  This is a rare achievement, and particularly impressive in an interdisciplinary context.

Anni’s thesis is entitled ‘A Model and Theory of Community-Based Arts and Health Practice’, and can be accessed here.

Anni’s work makes a substantial contribution to theorising arts in health practice drawing on the experience of practitioners in both the UK and Mexico and is essential reading for anyone working and researching in this area.

Many congratulations to Anni, it was a pleasure for her three supervisors (Jane Macnaughton, Andrew Russell and Sue Lewis) to work with her over the last few years.
