The Symposium focuses on the frontiers of humanities-driven health research, the impact of humanities on health science and health sector practices, and finally on future pathways for expanding the contribution of humanities health research in a Danish context.
In Denmark and abroad we see a growing need for understanding the cultural, social, ethical and personal aspects of a range of health challenges in our society. This includes e.g. the transition to personalized healthcare, improving mental health, equality of access to healthcare, bridging society and biotechnological innovations, and many other complex issues. The humanities hold the keys to answering a range of essential health questions and this symposium gathers prominent international and Danish scholars to present and debate the current contributions and future pathways of humanities health research.
The organizers welcome young and established health researchers from across disciplines and health professionals alike to join the symposium.
