Academic Conferences

Our next academic conference will take place at the University of New England in September 2018. More details will be available soon.

The coming symposium will build on the collaboration that we forged with the School of English at the University of Kent, when we co-sponsored the "Artists' Books and the Medical Humanities: An Interdisciplinary Symposium and Workshop" at the University of Kent in Canterbury in April 2016. The full symposium program is available here.

In addition to the Welcome Trust’s support, Artists’ Books and the Medical Humanities received generous funding from The Maine Women Writers Collection, Department of English, Westbrook College of Health Professions and Women’s and Gender Studies (University of New England) as well as from The Centre for Gender, Sexuality and Writing, The Centre for American Studies, and the Faculty of Humanities (University of Kent).
