As we celebrate the year end of the CMH New Generations Workshops we reflect on our accomplishments in an open showcase. The New Generations programme, funded by the AHRC and Wellcome Trust, was aimed at delivering an exciting and innovative skills development programme to a group of doctoral students and early career researchers in the medical humanities while facilitating the development of a supportive, interdisciplinary peer group. Additionally, the programme set out to create career development opportunities by enabling interaction between participants and staff in key centres of the medical humanities while engaging in discussions on the full range of medical humanities career options. This open showcase event provides an opportunity to reflect on these aims while also demonstrating the breadth of research underway amongst this group of doctoral students and early career researchers.
We are hosting the final workshop of the New Generations in Medical Humanities programme in Durham on 9th September 2015. On behalf of the core team at Durham and the entire New Gens cohort, we would be delighted if you could join us for this event.
Wednesday September 9th Lindisfarne Centre, St. Aidan’s College, Durham University
