What is the intersection of medicine and the humanities? At our first London-based event in over two years, we will explore this emerging field of research with a very special panel event.    

On the surface of things, these two subjects might seem unrelated. Join us to hear three leading UEA academics – Professor (and author of The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story) Christie Watson, Dr Harriet Cooper and Professor Sally Hardy – give their insights into how medicine and the humanities converge to create a more holistic approach to healthcare. You can also be the first to hear about one of the University’s most exciting upcoming plans!  

What better place to host such an event than The Royal Institution of Great Britain, London. A venue with huge cultural and historical significance – and at the forefront of introducing new teachings in science to the public. It truly is a spectacle within itself and one not to be missed.  

And – if that wasn’t enough – you will have the chance to see the work of recent UEA graduate, Dr Lena Ibrahim. Now working as an academic junior doctor at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, she began creating beautiful portraits of NHS staff to unwind after a stressful shift. A fantastic example of how medicine and the humanities can overlap in practice.  

The event is open to all and will be followed by a Q&A.
