Visiting Fellows

The MHRC has welcomed a variety of Visiting Fellows since its inception in 2012, working across a range of disciplines. If you are interested in carrying out medical humanities research at Glasgow as a Vising Fellow, please contact Gavin Miller.

Past Fellows have included:

  • Dr Jenny Eklöf, a senior lecturer in History of Science and Ideas at Umeå University, Sweden. Jenny researched the simultaneous scientization and popularization of mindfulness. Contact: jenny.eklof@umu.se.
  • Dr Jac Saorsa, a visual artist with a background in philosophy. Her project focused on a methodological and philosophical comparison of Jan Van Rymsdyk’s drawings for William Hunter’s Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus, and the development of Jac's own drawings for a project entitled Drawing Women’s Cancer. Jac explorated the relation between art and medicine, with specific emphasis on the existential ‘lived experience’ of illness.
  • Dr Donna McCormack, a lecturer in English Literature at the University of Surrey. Donna worked on a project that examined the interrelation of bodily and national borders in representations of organ transplantation. She focuson on how organ donation is an embodied metaphor for contemporary political anxieties, particularly concerning national belonging and transnational migration.
