Medical humanities scholar, Dr Gavin Miller, coordinated this exchange through the University of Glasgow’s Turing Mobility Scheme.

"We are so happy to be working with Gavin Miller on this and are hoping to host more colleagues from Glasgow in the future" says Ericka Johnson, Professor at CMHB, Linköping University.

In addition to presenting their work at one of the CMHB’s regular seminars, the doctoral students all received a mentor from Linköping University, presented their research at different departmental seminars, and attended the CMHB’s Futures Ahead conference.

"My time as a visiting doctoral student at CMHB introduced me to many wonderful researchers and projects. The culture at Linköping University is so welcoming and supportive. I learned about innovative theoretical and practical initiatives across disciplines pertaining to embodiment, health and illness: topics relevant to my own doctoral work. The opportunity to participate in the Futures Ahead medical humanities conference was a highlight of my visit and will inform new lines of enquiry in my research. I feel fortunate to have had this inspiring experience and I hope to maintain my connections with new colleagues and friends in Sweden" says Carrie Foulkes, one of the visiting doctoral students.
