MedEnv: Intersections of Medical and Environmental Humanities

Project Details

Description

Wellcome Small Grant in Humanities and Social Science

Layman's description

There exists a deep and complex relationship between human health and the environment. In light
of climate change and other environmental issues, securing health is one of the major challenges
facing humanity and the planet today. This programme will bring together a range of researchers
from both the medical and environmental humanities to explore the intersections between these two
areas. One of our key aims will be to consider how the humanities can be of value in understanding
the challenges facing humans and non-humans (which includes the environment as well as
animals) in relation to physical and mental health concerns posed by climate change,
environmental degradation, and animal-borne diseases.
