Health Humanities 2020: Narrative and Counternarrative

The 23rd Hiram Summer Seminar will explore the narratives and counternarratives of the health humanities as we enter the next decade of the twenty-first century. Thinking across disciplines including literature, bioethics, and history, we will consider why and how—by whom, about whom, and for whom—narratives of health, illness, and embodiment are told. We will also consider the narratives and counternarratives that surround the health humanities as a field, questioning how we might also think beyond or against narrative as object or method.

Due to ongoing concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the Hiram Summer Seminar will be postponed until the summer of 2021. Please check back for updates, or follow us Facebook or Twitter: @hiramlitmed. Questions may be directed to Emily Waples: waplesej@hiram.edu.
