CFP: Writing Health from the Eighteenth Century to the Twenty-First

3-5 June 2020
Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Northumbria University is organising a conference exploring interactivity between health and the written word, whether it be representations of medical practitioners in literature and art, or creative works written by medical people. The interdisciplinary nature of the subject invites work on cultural, economic and gender history, as well as literary, visual and
performing arts. We welcome proposals from researchers across a range of disciplines and stages of career, including early career and student scholars. Please send proposals of no more than 300 words, accompanied by a short biography, to by Friday 21st February 2020. Papers will be invited on a wide variety of relevant topics. A selection of revised papers is expected to be published as part of the project outputs.
