The launch event for The Edinburgh Companion to the Critical Medical Humanities will take place on Thursday 28 July, 4-6pm, Percy Building, Newcastle University. The Companion will be launched by Deborah Bowman, Professor of Clinical and Mental Health Ethics at the Tavistock and Portman and Editor, BMJ Medical Humanities.
The Companion is edited by Anne Whitehead and Jennifer Richards (Newcastle University), and Angela Woods, Sarah Atkinson and Jane Macnaughton (Durham University Centre for Medical Humanities). It documents the ways in which interdisciplinary thinking across the humanities and social sciences can contribute to, critique and develop medical understanding of the human individually and collectively.
If you would like to attend the wine reception to launch the Companion, please register by July 15th.
