This website is a capacity-building initiative for the medical humanities at Glasgow University. In recognition of the wide range of subject areas, research institutes, projects, and persons involved in research and teaching that falls under the umbrella of medical humanities, this website provides information on the range of activities currently underway at Glasgow, and aims to encourage future collaborations, both within and beyond the University.

A primary goal of the initiative is to create a community that fosters interdisciplinary research and teaching, as well as engagement with the extensive archival resources available at GU.

As such, the site is broken down into several components – ‘people’, ‘projects’, ‘teaching’, and ‘collections’ – all connected by common keywords. If you wish to search for work related to a particular subject area, topic, or funding body, please use the keywords to narrow your search parameters.

  • People: a list of individuals who are working on or engaged with the medical humanities at Glasgow.
  • Projects: a compilation of medical humanities projects being undertaken at Glasgow, along with details of outputs and participants.
  • Teaching: a list of Glasgow University courses, programmes, and lectures that are relevant to the medical humanities.
  • Collections: Glasgow University archive, library, and museum collections of relevance to the medical humanities. Additional information is then available via the respective collection holders’ websites (linked from profile pages).

For further information on Glasgow University research activities, visiting fellows, and discussion groups related to the medical humanities, please visit the Medical Humanities Research Centre (MHRC) Glasgow. For information regarding Scottish medical humanities events, see the MHRC blog.
