MHS Seminar – Seminar series on Medical Humanities

The Centre for Medical Humanities organizes a MHS-seminar with the title: “Elektricitet som medicin från 1700-tal till nutid: Elektroterapi och Deep Brain Stimulation” The seminar will be held in Swedish. The presenters are:

Michaela Malmberg, PhD student at the Department of History, Stockholm University with the presentation: Elektricitet som medicin under 200 år - Svensk elektroterapi ca 1750-1950, and 

Elena Jiltsova, neurosurgeon at Akademiska sjukhuset and PhD student at the Department of Neuroscience, Uppsala University, with the presentation "Deep Brain Stimulation – ett exempel på modern elektroterapi". 

The Centre for Medical Humanities at Uppsala university aims to create opportunities for connections and discissions between researchers from various scholarly domains related to issues of medical humanities. Therefore, we invite scholars from the different domains, for instance a researcher from the medical field and from the humanities, to present research on a common theme. In doing so, we hope to contribute to and stimulate new interdisciplinary conversations and questions.
