At Copenhagen Centre for Health Research in the Humanities (CoRe) at the University of Copenhagen we study the cultural and historical aspects of health-related issues. The CoRe group consists of interdisciplinary researchers who work on a variety of projects that focus on lifestyle and interventions, aging, and the life course, as well as food, diet, and eating.
The mission of the Centre is to conduct high-quality health research in the humanities, which explores the cultural, analytical, and historical aspects of health issues. We apply our knowledge in society by engaging with relevant people and organizations. In this manner, we develop knowledge and disseminate findings and tools that contribute to solving some of the major societal challenges that are related to health and disease. Read more about CoRE.
