The Medical Humanities Network is a hub for health and medical humanities research. The Network seeks to:

  • Contribute to the ways medicine and the humanities are taught and practiced;

  • Provide new models for research within and across fields; and

  • Foster collaborations between scholars working in humanities departments and their colleagues in the health sciences.

Our goal is to forge new interdisciplinary networks between campus, clinic, and community. In the Medical Humanities Network, both scholars in the medical and health humanities and the general public will find directories of recent scholarship, projects, events and social media activity related to the field throughout the world. The Network is sponsored by the  Consortium for Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI) , and hosted at the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University.
