Biography

Paul Crawford is Professor of Health Humanities at the School of Health Sciences, University of Nottingham and Director of the Centre for Social Futures at the Institute of Mental Health, one of the most prominent bodies for mental health research in the UK. He also co-directs Nottingham Health Humanities Research Priority Area supported by the Centre for Advanced Studies.

He is Director for the Creative Practice as Mutual Recovery programme, a national consortium funded by AHRC/RCUK Connected Communities (£1.5m) and has held various visiting professor or advisory board appointments globally. He is also Co-Founder of the Health Language Research Group at the University of Nottingham, bringing together academics and clinicians to advance communication research in health care settings and leads both the AHRC-funded Madness and Literature Network (www.madnessandliterature.org) and International Health Humanities Network (www.healthhumanities.org). He co-founded and coordinates the International Health Humanities Conference.

He serves on the editorial board of Journal of Medical Humanities, Communication & Medicine and Applied Arts in Health and acts as a referee for several prominent publishing houses and major journals.

In 2013 he was appointed as Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences (FAcSS).

In 2008 he was awarded a Lord Dearing Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

In 2007 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).

Professor Crawford has attracted prestigious funding from AHRC, AHRC/RCUK, ESRC, The Leverhulme Trust and The British Academy. He has written over 100 publications including peer-reviewed papers or chapters and books such as: Communicating Care (1998), Politics and History in William Golding (2003), Evidence Based Research (2003), Storytelling in Therapy (2004), Evidence Based Health Communication (2006), Communication in Clinical Settings (2006), Madness in Post-1945 British and American Fiction (2010), and Health Humanities (2010). His major, critical work on the novelist William Golding was reviewed in the TLS and reprinted chapters appeared in the prestigious Bloom's Guides (2004; 2008) in the US. He also wrote the entry on Golding in The Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature (Oxford University Press, 2006). Evidence Based Research (2003) won a Highly Commended Award in the British Medical Association (BMA) Book Awards in 2004.

Crawford's novel about mental illness, Nothing Purple, Nothing Black (2002) attracted the critical acclaim of major writers and commentators:

'Nothing Purple, Nothing Black is an unusual and unusually promising first novel. It's an intriguing, topical story, and Paul Crawford tells it with passion, wit, and a boldly metaphorical style.'

David Lodge

'Nothing Purple, Nothing Black draws you in and holds you suspended. A psychologically powerful study.'

Roy Porter

'Written with wit and a strong feeling for his protagonists… Crawford's fictional debut is impressive, and his depiction of the "mad and the sane" sharing "the same bathwater of life" lingers in the mind long after you turn the final page.'

Paul Sayer

'No other novel explores the painful dilemmas of the vow of chastity as this one does. Anyone who wants to know about the state of the Catholic Church, both from inside and out, must read Nothing Purple, Nothing Black.'

Theodore Dalrymple/ Anthony Daniels

'…I really enjoyed it…it is very well plotted…humane and somehow tender'

Sara Maitland

'Three bizarre lives become intertwined in this strange and intriguing tale: Harvey, a bishop with carnal yearnings, Crystal, a psychotic tramp, and Olwyn, the object of Harvey's yearning. Cleverly told with some touches of black humour, an unexpected finale and not a moment of boredom - I found it a great read.'

Rula Lenska

'Paul Crawford has written with clarity and chastity about the anguish of institutional celibacy…The desperate loneliness of the isolated priest is conveyed with Greene-like insight. A parallel theme is the alienation of the insane… Delusions, hallucinations and compulsions are vividly portrayed. There is no idealisation of the deranged - madness and its expectations are depicted with an insider's knowledge.'

Maurice Lipsedge

'This is a very powerful and touching novel in which the two worlds of the church and the laity are so well portrayed and poetically united. Crawford merges Graham Greene and Patrick Hamilton into the best of both - an obsessive internal landscape set against a murky dusk of a deadly town and a railway station going no-where.'

Stephen Lowe

Professor Crawford has also written articles and letters for national and regional newspapers and appeared on BBC Radio 4 (Today Programme, Woman's Hour), Radio 2 (Johnnie Walker), 5 Live (Simon Mayo) and various regional shows.
