The project investigated the significance of science fiction for the medical humanities, pathfinding for a future, large-scale research project. The project’s activities included:
A series of themed workshops, and a concluding conference, consolidating a network of interested researchers, clinicians, and writers.
The seeding of an ongoing online database of primary and secondary resources to aid future research.
A themed special issue of BMJ Medical Humanities published in December 2016 on ‘Science Fiction and the Medical Humanities’.
A creative writing competition (competition now closed), with successful entrants appearing in a competition anthology, A Practical Guide to the Resurrected, forthcoming later in 2017 from Freight Books.
