While postgraduate medical historians have often had the opportunity to converse with each other through various forums, the wider field of medical humanities has been neglected. This student-led conference seeks papers from a wide variety of disciplines to show the divergent as well as similar themes running through the work of  postgraduate medical humanities students. Sue Crossley from the Wellcome Trust will speak about funding opportunities for early-career researchers in the medical humanities.

Organised by an historian, a curator and a creative practitioner, this two-day conference will include workshops on methodological issues and give students the opportunity to present  their research findings in a supportive and dynamic environment. We welcome papers from history, history of art, philosophy, anthropology, literature, film, or indeed any form of research into the relationship between medicine and wider culture.

Abstracts of 250-words or fewer should be sent to by 11 March 2013. Subject to funding approval from the Wellcome Trust, small travel bursaries will be available to successful applicants.
