What we are doing within the centre will not remain solely within the centre. We strive to play an active role in the public debate and contribute to the making the medical humanities visible locally, nationally and internationally. We are planning several events and will gather them all here. 


Birgit Rausing Centre for Medical Humanities hosts the popular Kunskapskrogen, conversation evenings (in Swedish) about medicine and the human, which take place 3-4 times a year and are aimed at academics and the general public.
