New Weapons, New Wounds: Medicine in War and Rebellion
Tuesday 3, Thursday 5, Thursday 12 April
Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and discover how medicine has adapted over the centuries to cope with the increasingly sophisticated weaponry of warfare and the nature of resulting casualties. The College’s fascinating collections of medical objects and books will show the many facets of medical practice in the history of war and rebellion, telling the stories from the front line of medicine.

We are delighted to launch the website for ‘Reimagining Human Relations in Our Time’, a festival celebrating 70 years of the Tavistock Institute.
At the heart of the festival is the Institute’s archive which over the last two years has been intricately and delicately catalogued at Wellcome Library. These two things coinciding – our anniversary and the launch of the archive – are a great cause for celebration because the insights of our forebears as they tackled past societal challenges are now available to you. How might we take inspiration from their learning as we grapple with today’s major concerns, such as an environment at tipping point, ageing and social care, displaced people and populations, crises in faith, identity and leadership, and our wellbeing at work?
The festival website is the starting place for you to join us in these questions with access to a rich programme offering opportunities to take part, reflect, dream, debate, consider, listen and observe, and perform.
With its online booking system and easy to view programme you will be able to curate your own festival experience, keep in touch with festival news, and access recordings, reflections, and photographs posted following each event via the festival’s ‘ArchLive’.
