Health and wellbeing

“The pandemic has had a profound impact on being human: on our daily lives, our physical and mental health, and the way we spend our work and leisure time. Researchers across the humanities are working hard to examine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our health and wellbeing, from developing historical insights to exploring the significance of our domestic spaces.” - Festival Director, Professor Sarah Churchwell.
