Medical Humanities Sheffield is proud to launch a series of open interdisciplinary lectures, for students, staff and the general public.
The interface between medicine and science on the one hand, and the arts and social sciences on the other, is one of the most exciting and important in modern academic life, offering unrivalled potential for multidisciplinary work, policymaking, and public life.
