We are a vibrant interdisciplinary research cluster
that focuses on the literary, linguistic, social, cultural, historical,
and philosophical dimensions of health and sickness. We promote the
contributions of the humanities to healthcare, medical practice, and the
wider community and foster international collaboration among medical
humanities scholars to address healthcare issues of urgent concern in
South East Asia and beyond. We seek to expand our network across a wide
range of disciplines and welcome applications for PhD research on topics
related to health, culture, and society.
