International Health Humanities Consortium Conference 2018

April 20, 2018 -
7:30am to 8:00pm
Li Ka Shing Center

The Health Humanities Consortium promotes health humanities scholarship, education, and practices through interdisciplinary methods and theories that focus on the intersection of the arts and humanities, health, illness, and healthcare, with annual conferences sharing practices and scholarship. This year's conference coincides with the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and as such will highlight the themes of science's risky aspirations and how the humanities help communicate them.

Keynote speakers include Alexander Nemerov, Professor of Art and Art History at Stanford; Lester Friedman, Professor of Media and Society at Hobart and William Smith Colleges; Alvan Ikoku, Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature and Medicine at Stanford; and Catherine Belling, Associate Professor at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.
