Life Cycles, Bodies, Health and Disease

About

Our researchers work on the life-cycle, including childhood, gender, disease, death and personhood.

The School’s key investment in this area is the Northern Centre for the History of Medicine and Medical Humanities URC.

The Centre facilitates research in this highly interdisciplinary field ranging from medicine in literary culture to the delivery of medical care.

It also enables us to engage with the University's societal challenge theme on 'Ageing'.
