Network meetings and newsletters

The Nordic Network for Narratives in Medicine organises network meetings/conferences and sends out newsletters to the network members 4-6 times a year.

More than 120 members across the Nordic region subscribe to the Nordic Network for Narrative Medicine's newsletter. The newsletters contain information that the members have sent in about ongoing events, conferences, newly published books, calls for appointments at Nordic universities and colleges, etc.  The newsletter is sent out about twice per semester and is in Swedish.

Do you want to receive the newsletter? Or do you have information that you want to spread to others? Email Asa [dot] Thormahlen [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se (Asa[dot]Thormahlen[at]med[dot]lu[dot]se)

Newsletters from 2022-2023 in PDF format on our Swedish webbsite

Network meetings

Approximately every 1.5-2 years we invite our members to network meetings. These meetings are scientific conferences, open to researchers, teachers and students, as well as to representatives from the health care system. Conference contributions are preferably in Danish, Swedish or Norwegian, but we also welcome papers in English for non-Scandinavian speaking members and audiences.
