Cultures of Shame in Medicine: An Interdisciplinary Workshop

“Cultures of Shame in Medicine: An Interdisciplinary Workshop” is the third workshop organized by the Wellcome Trust Seed Funded ‘Shame and Medicine Project.' The aim of this workshop is to bring together a number of academics working from various disciplinary perspectives within Humanities (e.g., English, History, Visual Culture) in order to reflect on how shame dynamics permeate medical culture and practice. The workshop will consist of five talks covering diverse topics such as mesothelioma, HIV, surgeon experience and patient narratives. All are welcome to attend and registration can be completed through the Workshop’s Eventbrite page, here.

This workshop is sponsored by the Wellcome Trust, the Trinity Long Room Hub and the University of Exeter. For any further information, do not hesitate to contact the event’s organizers Dr Barry Lyons ( or Dr Luna Dolezal (
