Health Humanities & Social Justice: Breath, Body, Voice
September 14 - September 16
The Humanities Futures Capstone Conference is a culminating event of the 2014-2017 Mellon-sponsored Humanities Futures initiative at the Franklin Humanities Institute. The conference focuses on the interdisciplinary interface between the humanities, social justice, and health, whether in the health sciences, clinical environments, or the lived experience of states of health. How are the humanities transforming health, and how is health transforming the humanities? Co-sponsored by the FHI Health Humanities Lab.
Through keynotes, panels, interactive workshops, and performances, the conference will engage with four central areas of concern: arts, humanities, and healing; access and voice; health and its environments; and unsettling/resettling the human.
