Medical Humanities International Summer School 2024

The Centre for Medical Humanities and Bioethics at Linköping University and Durham’s Institute for Medical Humanities warmly invite applications to our joint Medical Humanities International Summer School (9–11 September 2024, Vadstena, Sweden).

The summer school will explore the theme: Interdisciplinarity: Medical Humanities and Research at the intersections of the Humanities, the Social Sciences, Clinical Practice and Biomedicine

What does interdisciplinarity in medical humanities mean? What are the epistemological underpinnings of different interdisciplinary ways of engaging in medical humanities research? What are the challenges and possibilities in interdisciplinary research at the intersection between the humanities, the social sciences, clinical research, and biomedicine?

These are some of the questions that will be explored in this Medical Humanities Summer School aimed at PhD students in medical humanities, social sciences, and medicine, and with an interest in interdisciplinary research.

The Summer School will be held between 9 – 11 September 2024, in beautiful Vadstena, close to Linköping, Sweden. It is coordinated by the Centre for Medical Humanities and Bioethics at Linköping University, in collaboration with the Institute for Medical Humanities at Durham University.

The summer school is free of charge and a range of travel and subsistence bursaries are available for UK PhD students and PhD students from lower- and middle-income countries. Applications close 12 March 2024.
