We are an interdisciplinary research network centred in the School of English and other Schools across the Division of Arts and Humanities and in the Social Sciences at the University of Kent.
Many of us contribute to teaching for the MA in Medical Humanities and we have been working together to foster collaboration and exchange among medical and health humanities studies scholars. We are looking to expand our network within Kent and beyond, across a wide range of disciplines. Please contact any of us if you are interested in getting involved. We especially welcome applications for PhD research on topics related to medical and health humanities studies.
Current research projects in the School of English include:
- Artists’ Books and the Medical Humanities
- Literary Culture, Meritocracy and the Assessment of Intelligence in Britain and America, 1880-1920
The Cluster runs a medical humanities reading group that meets every other week during term time and is open to staff and students. For more information and to join the mailing list, contact Dr Stella Bolaki, S.Bolaki@kent.ac.uk.
