The Newcastle Medical Humanities Network is an interdisciplinary group of over 160 researchers from across Newcastle University. Our members work in the disciplines of literature, history, fine art, architecture, creative writing, business studies, archaeology, linguistics, museum studies, sociology, medical ethics, culture and media studies, and beyond.

We work on a diverse range of questions relating to medicine, health, and wellbeing. Our methodological approaches to these questions are historical, critical, and creative.

The Network facilitates cross-disciplinary collaborations, connecting researchers across the university. We share research in progress, host workshops to explore ideas and methodologies, organise training events for early-stage researchers, and develop relationships with local partners.

The Network profiles the range and vibrancy of medical humanities research at Newcastle. We bring people together with the aim of making a difference in relation to the key medical and healthcare challenges of today.

We are supported by the Institute for Creative Arts Practice and the Humanities Research Institute at Newcastle University.

We are an active member in the Northern Network for Medical Humanities.
