Symptom and sensation in breathlessness: medical humanities meets clinical neuroscience

A performance of the radically inclusive

Groningen Vocal Exploration Choir, directed by Chris Tonelli (Arts in Society)

The Groningen Centre for Health & Humanities (GCH2 ) at the Faculty of Arts joins together researchers working on topics related to history of medicine and the body, historical demography, gender, health politics, art history, architecture, linguistics and literary studies. Our interdisciplinary research, often together with health professionals and policy makers, is aimed at understanding the cultural, social and political mechanisms of health and wellbeing. An important role is given to the question how we can apply this body of knowledge in every-day practice.
