Deadline for Entries: 24th May 2018
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), in association with the Wellcome Trust, is pleased to announce that submissions are now open for the 2018 Health Humanities Medal.
The Health Humanities champions the application of the arts and humanities in interdisciplinary research, education and social action to inform and transform health and social care, health, and/or wellbeing. It aims to:
- be inclusive of viewpoints and contributions from within and beyond medicine, while valuing the experience, knowledge and participation of the public
- explore diverse approaches to achieving, maintaining or recovering quality of life
- strive for demonstrable impacts, not least in providing new evidence and insights for the education or practices of those planning, organising or working for the health of any population.
The Health Humanities Medal recognises and showcases the very best research, impact, and leadership from this field of study.
We hope it will encourage further valuable work at the interface between research in the arts and humanities and in healthcare, health and wellbeing.
Applications and nominations are invited under five categories:
Best Doctoral or Early Career Research
Best International Research
Applications and nominations can be made in multiple categories, provided the eligibility criteria for each is met. You must complete a separate Smart Survey form for each category entered. In such cases the shortlisting process will consider how well the application/nomination meets the criteria.
The deadline for entries is 24 May 2018. Detailed information about the categories, eligibility and procedures can be found on the website.
