Shame and Medicine (Project Launch, Trinity College Dublin)

The Shame and Medicine Project is an engagement between medical practitioners, social scientists, philosophers and medical humanities scholars seeking to investigate the role of shame in the context of health, medicine and medical practice. Led by PIs Dr Barry Lyons and Dr Luna Dolezal the project is a collaboration between Trinity College Dublin and the University of Exeter. This project is primarily funded by a Wellcome Trust Seed Award and has also received support from Trinity College Dublin’s AHSS Benefactions Fund.
