This seminar, which will form part of the AHRC’s ‘Being Human’ Festival of the Humanities, presents ideas and projects which respond to a dialogue that, at its core, is inherently about interdisciplinarity. It allows lead researchers and participants, who might be considering engaging in future projects, to unpack the processes and methodologies of collaborative research between artists, scientists and patients.

Two projects – Under the Skin (Dr Catherine Baker, Norwich University of the Arts and Prof Iain Gilchrist, University of Bristol) and Significant Walks (Dr Shirley Chubb, University of Chichester and Prof Ann Moore, University of Brighton,  funded by the Wellcome Trust) will anchor the Negotiating Practice programme, serving as a springboard for discussions about the role such collaborative research projects play in informing public understanding of, and empathy for, chronic physical challenges.
