L'interdisciplinarité en pratique

Interdisciplinarity in Practice: Medical Humanities Research Workshop for PGRs 

Call for Participants 

Thursday 7th September 

University of Leeds, 11am – 6pm 

We warmly invite participants for a one-day workshop addressing the scholarly challenges and collaborative opportunities surrounding postgraduate research in the medical humanities. 

Increasing numbers of postgraduate students from a wide range of disciplines are undertaking work on human health, wellbeing, disease, and the body that entails interdisciplinary approaches. Conducting PhD research across disciplinary boundaries offers significant opportunities for innovative scholarship, but it can also present practical and intellectual challenges for those at the earlier stages of their academic careers. 

This workshop, supported by the AHRC, will bring together postgraduate students in the medical humanities for interactive sessions and open discussion on research skills and professional career development in the field. 

Session topics will cover: 
  • Undertaking an interdisciplinary PhD 
  • Research methodologies 
  • The disciplines of the medical humanities and disciplinary “identity” 
  • Adapting your work for different audiences 
  • Collaboration within and beyond academia 
  • Positioning yourself for job and funding applications 
  • Publishing in the field 

Session leaders include: 
Dr Emily T. Troscianko (University of Oxford) 
Dr Victoria Bates (University of Bristol) 
Dr Sam Goodman (Bournemouth University)
Dr James Stark (University of Leeds) 
Dr Catherine Oakley (University of Leeds) 

Keynote address: Professor Jane Macnaughton (Durham University) 

The workshop is open to postgraduate students currently studying for a PhD in any discipline relating to the medical humanities, or whose research corresponds with this area. There is no charge for attendance, and travel bursaries will be available for successful applicants. Numbers are strictly limited. 

To apply, please send a one-page CV and a 250-word supporting statement outlining your research and explaining your interest in attending, to Catherine Oakley (C.M.C.Oakley@leeds.ac.uk), by Friday 23 June.
