Welcome to the Medical Humanities Network
Welcome to the Glasgow University Medical Humanities Network, supported by the Wellcome Trust. The medical humanities complement, contextualise and critique purely biomedical, technological or other reductive accounts of what it means to experience illness, encounter disease or transact a therapeutic relationship. In addressing how we comprehend health, sickness, disease and “the embodied life”, such concerns are examined from a range of professional and patient perspectives. This website is intended to act as a forum to connect individuals working across a range of disciplines and practices at the University of Glasgow, who are interested in the intersections of medicine, culture, and the arts and humanities.

The University of Glasgow’s Hunterian collection holds a large number of pathological specimens of great cultural value, currently inaccessible to the public. Novel digitisation techniques hold the potential to improve current preservation methods within historical collections. This study explored the prospect of using photogrammetry to digitise a selection of specimens within the pathology collections to produce digital models suitable for display and interaction.
