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 Adrian Chapman, an adjunct at Florida State University (London). Adrian was researching the archive of R. D. Laing, the radical psychiatrist and countercultural figure. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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: email@example.com.
- 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.

She worked on an AHRC-funded project entitled "Representing Communities: Developing the creative power of people to improve health and wellbeing".
