3rd IHHN Conference 2014 - University of Nottingham - 5th - 7th September 2014

Posted on Monday 7th April 2014 by Charley Baker



3rd International Health Humanities Network Conference - Traumatextualities: Trauma in the clinical, arts and humanities contexts


Following the huge success of the 2010 and 2012 IHHN conferences in Nottingham and New Jersey (USA), Nottingham Health Humanities and the ICSPCRR (International Consortium for the Study of Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Reconciliation) are pleased to announce the 3rd IHHN conference, to be held in Nottingham in September 2014.


With the centenary of WW1, the occasion to reflect on the broader realities of conflicts and their traumas is of paramount importance. We are looking for papers that will engage with the topics of war, conflict, trauma, PTSD, among others, in a diverse array of contexts, past or present, military and non-military. Papers should have an interdisciplinary approach and serve as the interface between Health and Humanities contexts.


Date: 5th - 7th September 2014 


Call for Papers

We seek submission of abstracts for 20-30 minutes presentations, 1 hour symposia, or poster presentations, on (but not limited to): 

- Trauma in Literature and the arts

- PTSD (representations of / experiences of in humanities subjects)
