2020 Health Humanities Conference – ‘Health and Our Environment’

Some readers may be interested to know about an upcoming one-day conference being held at Nottingham on March 23, co-organised by the two PhD students attached to the Nightingale Comes Home project, Mathilde Vialard and Frances Cadd, along with their colleague from English, Emma Putland.

The conference is on the theme of ‘Health and Our Environment’. Over recent decades understandings of health and wellbeing have increasingly shifted from the ‘individualised’ and ‘medicalised’ view that dominated at the turn of the twentieth century, towards a more holistic approach, giving thought to how an individual’s environment can also impact and shape their health and wellbeing, whether at a personal, local or global level. A range of great speakers are lined up to tackle these themes from a variety of perspectives.

It’s free to attend, and it’s being hosted in Nottingham’s shiny(ish) and new(ish) Teaching and Learning Building, on the main University Park Campus.

If you’d like to know more, here’s a link to the draft programme for the day. Or you can contact the organisers at aj-hhrpa@exmail.nottingham.ac.uk.

If you’d like to register for the event, please do so via the dedicated EventBrite page.

Hope to see some of you there!
