About Health Humanities at Swansea University

Our MPhil/PhD programme in Health Humanities offers the opportunity to study with world-leading academics in the health humanities, researching issues related to health and illness from the humanities and social sciences in the exciting research community at the College of Human and Health Sciences.

This course explores 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.
