The Association for Medical Humanities

 8th Annual Conference

 Leicester, July 11th – 13th 2011

The joint organisers of the conference, Leicester and Nottingham Universities, invite AMH members and non-members to attend, and to submit papers for presentation .

The conference is supported by the Wellcome Trust

Conference theme: The Drama of Medicine – ‘All the Ward’s a Stage’

From ancient times, theatre has encapsulated the human experience and reflected this back to the audience.  By using this metaphor, the broadest interface between the Arts and humanities and medicine can be shown to do the same, and to promote discussion/debate and maybe to kindle new interests. Format

There were plenary addresses, workshops and parallel paper presentation sessions.

Papers for presentation were grouped into three sub-themes:

-        Comedy, tragedy, history   - stories, narratives, experiences

-        Dramatis personae   - people, characters, roles

-        The stage- healthcare settings, environments, barriers 

Plenary speakers 

Paul Crawford (Nottingham University) – The ‘Health Humanities’

David Gentilcore (Leicester  University) – the history of medical licensing and the Charlatan’s Charter

Laurie Maguire (Oxford University) – Shakespeare’s guide to health and healthcare

Jed Mercurio (author) – the doctor as anti-hero


 Leicester University’s conferencing facilities, located within delightful grounds and with close proximity to the spectacular Botanic Gardens.
