The Centre for Health, Arts, Society & Environment

The Liverpool Centre for Health, Art, Society and Environment (CHASE) provides a home for scholars working at the intersection of the humanities, social sciences, health, medicine and environment.

Its purpose is to create an interdisciplinary space beyond departmental settings to enhance collaborative research and to foster critical inquiry, dialogue and creativity. Working in and across three key themes – Critical Medical Humanities; Environmental Humanities; and Arts, Mental Health and Wellbeing – CHASE aims to respond to complex, emergent challenges that do not easily fit into one discipline or perspective.

With interests ranging from Anthropocene Studies to zoonotic diseases, CHASE seeks to forge innovative methodologies and theoretical approaches, conducting academic and public-facing work with a range of partners and collaborators including artists, scientists, and the NHS.
