Listen to Ciara Breathnach discuss the Association of Medical Humanities 2020 conference

This conference invites practitioners, artists, scholars and patients to think about space in the broadest terms. This may take the form of considering the physical spaces in which healthcare is delivered or the contexts of public and private discourses about health and illness. It may take the form of considering how work in the Medical Humanities opens up critical understandings of space; its metaphors, configuration and geographies.

This conference places a number of questions and considerations within the discussion of space. Formed of imaginary, psychodynamic, material and cultural conditions of production and reproduction, space simultaneously creates and is created by disciplines, experiences and bodies.

Dr Breathnach is a Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Limerick, Ireland. She is a current Irish research Council Laureate holder and her research focuses on Irish social history of medicine and health.
