The Royal Irish Academy will host a one-day symposium entitled Medical Humanities: New Frontiers or Back to the Past? on Thursday 6 March  2014 from 9.00am to 4.30pm. The aim of this one-day symposium is to open dialogue between clinicians, medical educators and humanists in order to advance debate on the role of humanities in medical education.

The symposium is divided into four sessions with top scholars on every panel:

1. Patient narratives and subjected bodies – methodological frameworks
2. Big data and biopower
3. Plenary address by Professor Martyn Evans, University of Durham
4. Roundtable session: research-led teaching in Medical Humanities
