CHCI Medical Humanities Network Call for Papers: Summer Institute 2021: Space, Place, Design

Announcements, Public Humanities, Medical Humanities

February 17, 2021

The Summer Institute hosted by the University of Southern Denmark, which was originally scheduled for June 2020, has been rescheduled to June 24-25, 2021. In light of ongoing travel restrictions, the conference will take place virtually.

We are now circulating the CFP for 2021. You are invited to submit an abstract, even if you did not already submit one for this conference. Submissions are due on March 15, 2021.

Participants whose papers have already been accepted for the conference will be able to present their paper. You will soon be contacted directly by the conference coordinator, Helene Snede Andersen, with a re-registration form.

Among many other topics, we are particularly interested in thinking about how Space, Place, and Design in healthcare have changed in the last year. The new emphasis on virtual healthcare has increased access for some (e.g. for those with mobility issues) while decreasing access for others (e.g. for those with poor internet or low technological literacy).

We very much hope to receive proposals on these and other topics! Please direct questions either to Arden Hegele ([email protected]) or to Helene Snede Andersen ([email protected]).
