The by now well established University of Exeter Postgraduate Medical Humanities Conference is returning in 2017 for the fourth consecutive year to showcase the diversity of contemporary medical humanities research. Our conference this year will provide a platform for an international community of postgraduate researchers to share insights and network with academics working within and across disciplinary boundaries.
While we encourage innovative submissions that relate to any aspect of medical humanities, the following subject areas are of particular interest:
History of medicine
Gender and sexuality
Transformations of the body
History and philosophy of science
Occupational health and industrial psychology
Medicine and the law
Medicine and the body in popular culture
Literature and medicine
Medical practise and issues of intersectionality
Globalization and biomedical practice
Although all proposals must address the conference’s central theme, we welcome scholarly submissions from those operating outside of traditional humanities research settings, such as medical students and community activists.
Applicants are invited to submit abstracts of up to 300 words (for 20-minute previously unpublished papers) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 10th February 2017 with “PGMH 2017 Conference Abstract” written in the subject line of the email. We are also keen to receive panel and workshop proposals. These should include 300-word abstracts for up to four speakers, along with a 500-word overview that explains the aims and rationale of the session.
We hope to offer a small number of travel bursaries for this event, the details of which will be announced in due course.
