Call for Participants: Global Health Humanities Workshop

This workshop, organised by Dr Rohan Deb Roy (co-director of the University of Reading’s Centre for Health Humanities), examines how biomedicine was received, reinterpreted and transformed in the non-western world in the twentieth century. Through case studies focussing on India, Palestine, China and Africa, it traces the various ways in which the medical category of ‘global health’ was consolidated in course of the last century.

We’re excited to announce that our confirmed speakers include Professor Mark Harrison, Dr Chris Wilson, Dr Mary Augusta Brazelton, and Dr Ann H. Kelly.

If you’re interested in attending the workshop, please RSVP to
