Health Humanities

This course is leading the way in health humanities through the application of the concepts and methods of history, literature and the visual arts to the analysis of health and healthcare. Disability history is a particular area of expertise, with an oral history of people affected by the drug, thalidomide, currently underway. Students are exploring a variety of areas within these fields ranging from narratives of childbirth to images of disability in the post-war English-language literature of Wales.

Assessment methods

A thesis of no more than 100,000 words is submitted, which demonstrates original research that contributes significantly to the subject area. This is then followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva).
