Welcome to the Medical Humanities Network
Welcome to the Glasgow University Medical Humanities Network, supported by the Wellcome Trust. The medical humanities complement, contextualise and critique purely biomedical, technological or other reductive accounts of what it means to experience illness, encounter disease or transact a therapeutic relationship. In addressing how we comprehend health, sickness, disease and “the embodied life”, such concerns are examined from a range of professional and patient perspectives. This website is intended to act as a forum to connect individuals working across a range of disciplines and practices at the University of Glasgow, who are interested in the intersections of medicine, culture, and the arts and humanities.

The papers of Guido Pontecorvo, Malcolm Ferguson-Smith, and James Harrison Renwick have been selected for inclusion in the Wellcome Digital Library pilot project "Modern Genetics and its Foundations". Over the next five years Wellcome intends to create a groundbreaking digital library, which will allow open access to a variety of online research materials, including books, archives, films, photographs and audio content. These three significant collections of influential Glasgow Geneticists will be digitised over the coming year by the University of Glasgow in its new digitisation suite.
