The Centre for the Humanities and Health at King’s College London is a Wellcome Trust-funded research centre in the Medical Humanities which was launched in October 2009.

The Centre aims to illuminate the subjective and experiential aspects of illness and health through literature, philosophy, history and film studies. The Medical Humanities is an emerging interdisciplinary field, and the Centre aims to make a significant contribution to its development in the UK, and in the world, through a multi-stranded programme of research on “The Boundaries of Illness”.

The Centre engages scholars from the Arts, Humanities and Health disciplines nationally and internationally. In particular, it engages scholars from Literature, Philosophy, History, the Visual Arts, Film Studies, Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry, Medicine and Nursing. See who’s who at the Centre here.

The Centre is located on the 5th floor of the East Wing, Strand Campus, King’s College London.
