New directions in the medical humanities
This research cluster continues to shape fast-moving interdisciplinary research in the medical humanities, both locally and internationally.
Our contributions include high-impact interventions on debates around autonomy, disability and mental health; insight, objectivity and the management of risk; and experiences of powerlessness in contexts of chronic illness, end-of-life care, addiction and moral distress.
Through this cluster, we have forged multiple partnerships across disciplines, including Law, Sociology, and Health and Social Care; and with non-academic stakeholders, from local hospices to the UK Ministry of Justice, the Judicial College and the Council of Europe. Our work in the medical humanities contributes to the wider Faculty of Arts and Humanities research in Health and Medical Humanities.
