Critically Engaged Medical Humanities: the model of 'Life of Breath' Other events...
A public lecture by Jane Macnaughton, Professor of Medical Humanities, Durham University, UK and Co-Director of the Durham University Centre for Medical Humanities.

Can the arts and humanities make a real difference to clinical practice and research? This lecture takes up that challenge by describing a new trajectory for medical humanities, which is demonstrating that the field can go further than simply 'humanising' clinical students and practitioners.

In this lecture Professor Macnaughton will illustrate the changing face and current ambition for this field with reference to a new project that is underway at the Centre for Medical Humanities at Durham University, UK. This project, the 'Life of Breath', is funded by a Senior Investigator Award from the Wellcome Trust.

This lecture is part of the 2016 Institute of Advanced Studies' Medical Humanities Public Lecture Series and is co-sponsored with the School of Primary, Aboriginal and Rural Health Care, UWA.
