Post-crisis professionalism: setting the agenda for a new politics of healthcare professionalism

Post-crisis professionalism: setting the agenda for a new politics of healthcare professionalism


This two-day conference will foster debate amongst researchers, policymakers and professional representatives to better understand the socio-cultural and political pressures facing healthcare professionals following the COVID-19 pandemic, and to understand how these pressures are transforming healthcare professionalism.

Healthcare professionalism is conceptualised as an inherently political construct that is shaped by the expectations of multiple stakeholders and where professionals themselves negotiate these expectations in their practice, culture and identity.

In the contemporary, post-pandemic period, healthcare systems face significant resource constraints and workforce shortages; the possibilities and risks of new technologies, especially AI in the re-shaping of care; and growing appreciation of pervasive health disparities and the need to remodel services towards more preventative health improvement.

Such demands call for health professionalism to be re-imagined at the cultural and political levels. The aim of the conference is to establish a new global research agenda that will set the direction of scholarship and professional development for the next decade by encouraging international comparative research and cross-national thinking The conference will be themed to facilitate focused discussion and learning across presentations.

The event will also include an optional roundtable session for early career researchers.

Themes to include:

Theme 1: Knowledge and practice under pressure
Theme 2: Working out/through boundaries and connections
Theme 3: Organisational and Technological Innovation
Theme 4: Professions, Publics and Polity

Laughter & Medicine Conference

Laughter & Medicine Conference


This British Academy/Wellcome Trust conference is a transdisciplinary gathering of clinicians and humanities scholars from around the world. A key goal of the conference is to bring the insights of practitioners and scholars to bear on each other’s fields of experience and expertise in order to yield fresh methodological possibilities and interpretative avenues.

The conference will explore two interconnected questions: 1) How does laughter in all its complexity impact on medical care, illness and well-being, health care providers and patients? 2) How does the history of artistic and cultural representations of laughter in medical contexts reflect or make sense of diverse medical experiences and function in relation to larger ideological, philosophical and other discourses?

Confirmed conference presentations will address comic representations of physicians and disease in literature and the spatial and temporal arts in classical, medieval and modern Western cultures. They will also examine laughter’s role in the professional activities and ethics of various medical fields, incorporating the perspectives of philosophy, communication studies, psychology and sociology.

We welcome all those with a curiosity to learn more about the links between laughter and medicine (from students to seniors and everything in between) to attend this conference, which will be held at the Edgbaston Park Hotel on the University of Birmingham campus.

Discounts available for two-day attendance. Concession rate available to students and seniors (age 60+); please have photo ID available to be checked at the conference registration desk.
