About us

The Centre for Medical Humanities (CMH) was established in late 2014/early 2015.

First and foremost, it aims to promote world-leading interdisciplinary research and actively engage with new academic and non-academic audiences.

Second, it strives to encourage a fresh collaborative partnership across the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the University more broadly.

Third, it brings together historians of medicine and scholars with interests in medical humanities from History, Philosophy, Social and Life Sciences as well as Anthropology and Religion. Finally, it seeks to explore new opportunities for extending its current academic network and establish new ones. 

CMH also hosts the Working Group on the History of Race and Eugenics, established in 2006, and it provides editorship for the CEU Studies in the History of Medicine, established in 2011.
