About this event

Registration website

The COVID-19 pandemic is having significant impacts on the ways in which we conduct and disseminate our research that will change how we, as scholars of the medical humanities, approach our field in the future.

Focusing on the historical theme of 'policy', how do we move forward from this? What new avenues are open to us in the post-COVID world? Can we use this pandemic to reassess our methodologies and enrich our networks to foster a truly global research community?________________________________________________________________________________________________
