Queen’s University Belfast School of Modern Languages and School of History and Anthropology are excited to announce this one-day symposium in medical humanities.

The symposium is open to all postgraduate students and ECRs who are interested in or currently pursuing research in the medical humanities in the UK and Ireland.

It brings together a broad range of specialists across different subject areas and disciplines to provide training in the practical skills and challenges facing researchers in medical humanities. They will also provide their own insights into the opportunities and resources available for postgraduate researchers. 

The day will begin with a plenary by Dr Martha Few (University of Arizona), followed by three workshop sessions. Each session will be led by established researchers in the field. Topics to be addressed range from strategies for successful grant applications, to preparing digital projects, and dealing with sensitive materials in medical research.  

The symposium will start with registration at 9:30am on Wednesday 2nd December 2015, in the McClay Library Auditorium, Queen’s University Belfast.
