New Dates for an Online PHPI - 2nd to 4th September

Public Health/Private Illness is now taking place online on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September 2020, with two online workshop sessions on the evening of Wednesday 2nd

Talks will be pre-recorded and posted in advance on our dedicated YouTube playlist for you to watch at your leisure in the week or so before the conference.

We will then have live Q&A sessions of around 45 minutes for panels of 3 speakers via Zoom on the 3rd and 4th Sep. This way you can submit questions in advance or ask them on the day.

The conference will feature a space to explore and ask questions about some of our posters as well as our poetry and prose reading event towards the end of Thursday. There will also be a film screening and other opportunities to socialise informally with other attendees.


Thurs 3rd and Fri 4th Sep 2020, Glasgow (but online so anywhere really)

Public Health, Private Illness is a two-day interdisciplinary medical humanities conference aimed at early career researchers but open to anyone - patients, practitioners, policy-makers or more established academics are all welcome. It will take place online on Thurs 3rd and Fri 4th September, 2020.

The conference is free to attend and we welcome attendees from any geographical or educational background.

Our keynote speaker is Dr Chisomo Kalinga. Chisomo can't make it on the day but will give her paper entitled '"No man is an island": Understanding Indigenous and African perspectives of personal wellbeing within Global Health Studies' later in the year as a continuation of the conference.

Public Health, Private Illness is organised by the University of Glasgow’s Medical Humanities ECR Group and generously funded by the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts and the British Society for Literature and Science.
